Just a spoonful of sugar

Or maybe two cup-fulls of it!

Homemade caramel sauce....

A spoonful just isn't enough!

I know I've already eaten my fair share of them!

And you wouldn't believe how easy it is.  Seriously, three ingredients, and it only takes five minutes!  You can eat it over ice cream, dip pretzels/brownies/cookies in it, or just eat it out of the jar (my favorite!)

Five minute Caramel Sauce

2 cups of sugar
Six TBs butter
1 cup heavy cream

Start by heating the sugar up in a pot over medium heat.  It'll soon start to form into little clumps, and gradually melt.  Keep stirring, and don't let it sit or it will burn!  When it gets the caramel-y brown color, add your butter, a tablespoon at a time.  BUT NOT ALL AT ONCE! 
Seriously, don't do that.
Keep stirring!  Doesn't it smell divine?  When the butter's melted, take it off the heat, and add your cream slowly.  Stir a little more, and voila!  You're done!  The easiest, yummiest, best-est caramel sauce in Manhattan.  And it only took you five minutes.  :) :)

Enjoy every spoonful.....

Question of the day: Would you rather have chocolate sauce, caramel, or nothing at all on your ice cream?

  1. Mmmmm, looks delicious! I want to try it!!! And to answer your question, simple is best! I love ice cream in it's purest form: straight from the carton, untained by sauces. However, throw in some pretzels, and I'll be in heaven. :)

    1. I'm with you:-) Icecream out of the carton is the best:) BUT a few Reeses Peanut Butter cups don't hurt. Or maybe more then few!

  2. I love plain ice cream...does milk work???

  3. Oh no, I want layers with my ice cream! Either lots of chocolate, or peanut butter, or coffee or mint - or rich plain vanilla. I'm an all or nothing ice cream gal. Like, give me the whooooooole carton:) And some of this sauce:)

  4. Oooooh, Mary Frances reminded me of the peanut butter. Give or take the chocolate/mint/coffee, but peanut butter? Throw some of that in WITH the pretzels. Mmmmm. :) And did I meantion I really want to try the sauce? Looks delicious.

  5. Well you all should! Make it, that is. My siblings gobbled it up, and what you see in the pictures is all that's left! And I made it two days ago!!!!!!
