Holy crapoli. This stuff is good. And really easy to make. I used it in a recipe that I'll share tomorrow, but this would also be crazy good over some ice cream.
Homemade Caramel Sauce
1/4 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
6 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
First of all, prepare all your ingredients and have them standing by, measured out and ready to use. In a heavy saucepan, combine the water and sugar over medium high heat. Allow the sugar and water to come to a boil, stirring very little, if at all. Allow the mixture to boil, undisturbed for 8-10 minutes.Watch the sugar as it melts. When the mixture becomes an amber color, quickly stir in the butter, being careful not to be splattered by the boiling. Remove from heat and count to five, then carefully stir in the whipping cream until mixture is smooth. Allow to cool for a half hour before pouring into the container of your choice. Store in the refrigerator and reheat before use.
It's yummy. And pretty simple. Therefore, I love it!
