I love caramel’s, but it’s SO hard to get right! My sister has this AMAZING caramel recipe (I’ll share it someday I promise), what makes it so amazing is how buttery it is. So when I decided to take on caramel sauce I knew it had to have to have the buttery caramel goodness at the base.
I serve this caramel sauce over ice cream, that is if I don’t eat it all first! It’s seriously good straight. A lot of people I gave jars to last year told me they didn’t ever get to try it on ice cream because they tried it and couldn’t put it down. The best compliment a cook can ever receive!
It’s a simple recipe that I usually triple, at least. When I’m making neighbor fits I double my triple batch, what’s that even called, sextuple the recipe? It makes 18 cups that way! Last year I made 2 sextuple batches for 36 cups, enough for me to keep some and cover 30 neighbors and friends.

Man just looking at these pictures and I want to go eat more! It’s great with vanilla ice cream, vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate ice cream and more! I like it on cake and brownies as well, and I’ll sometimes even add it to my hot chocolate! GAH! I hate writing food posts late at night, all I want now is sweets!
