What does it take to make an incredible caramel sauce? Just 3...yes, three ingredients. Perfect timing and not being distracted by any social media will also ensure a superb sauce that will make your stomach flutter with excitement and your eyes tear up in delight. Seriously! I'm not kidding. It happened to me.
Come on...look at this sauce?!? Aren't you getting just a wee bit excited? Maybe it's just me and caramel. Oh, caramel. You tempt me so.
Whisk in the butter.
Whisk in the cream. Now look at this gorgeous caramel sauce! It wasn't that difficult, right? My words of advice are to make sure you have your butter and cream right there ready for the pan. When the sugar melts, you need to move quickly. Also make sure you aren't using your smallest pan in the house. This sauce may not look like a lot but it will foam up and it is hot! Don't be tempted to dip your finger in it. I'm warning you to be patient and let it cool a while. Then you just dip in your spoon. Go ahead, dig in! It is amazing!
I used the recipe from Simply Recipes.
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: about 7 minutes
Ingredients (Makes a little over 1 cup of s)
- 1 cup of sugar
- 6 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
In a 2 (or 3) quart pan, melt the sugar over medium heat. Whisk the sugar as it melts to make sure you don't burn it. As soon as sugar comes to a boil, stop stirring. You should have a liquid sugar that is a dark amber color.
Add the butter and stir it in. Remove the pan from the heat.
Slowly add the cream to the sauce (take caution as it is very hot and it may foam up). Whisk the sauce until it is nice and smooth.
Pour into a jar and and store it in the fridge for up two weeks. Heat up before serving.
