If you don’t know by now, I love me some caramel. This is one of the easiest caramel sauce recipes I’ve ever run across..
- 1 packed cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup milk or half and half (I have made this with skim and homogenized milk and turns out well each time)
- 4 tablespoons butter
- Pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Put sugar, milk, butter and salt in pot on stove over medium-low heat. Stir mixture until it starts to bubble – cook for 5 minutes while stirring until mixture thickens. (About 7 minutes in total… if you cook it TOO long it will turn into a fudge…) Add vanilla and cook another minute to thicken further.. remove from heat and let cool. Store in jar in fridge for ice cream or whenever you need some caramel!
