Homemade caramel sauce is heaven on earth! Whenever I make this, I swear I hear angels singing. This makes quite a bit, but it keeps well in the refrigerator. Use it to top ice cream, cake, gingerbread or in all your recipes that use caramel. You could also just grab a spoon …. no one will judge. 😉
- 2 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup butter
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Heat all ingredients except for the vanilla to boiling in a heavy Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat slightly, boil for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently, until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is caramel colored. Stir in vanilla.
- Serve hot or warm. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
