Caramel Sauce - Sweetness!

Home-made Caramel Sauce

I have received a few emails requesting a Caramel Sauce recipe that can be used for desserts and especially for ice cream. I use this sauce for making my home-made Caramel sauce which I use to drizzle over any dessert to transform it from really good to succulent.

This sauce is perfect for ice cream, and ice cream desserts such as a Banana Split. You can use it in Bannoffee Pie too. Or to drizzle over cupcakes, bakes, loaves, baked fruits... I even use it as a caramel topping for my Chocolate Fudge Pie, which you are going to love..
A must have recipe for all the sweetness lovers :)

Use this sauce as a topping to Chocolate Fudge Pie
Caramel Sauce
You Need
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp light corn syrup
1/3 cup double cream
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp corn starch
1/4 tsp Salt

Tips Use a heavy saucepan, because sugar tends to burn fast and heavy saucepans have better heat distribution qualities and usually no hot spots. Also go for a pan that is lightly coloured on the inside so that you can see how dark your sugar gets.

In a medium sized heavy saucepan combine the brown sugar and cornstarch. Add 1/4 cup water and mix, add the cream, the corn syrup and the butter and cook over medium heat, stirring continuously until the mixture boils and is bubbly. Continue to cook, stirring for 2 minutes extra. Remove from heat and cool slightly. You can store in jars and refrigerate for 3 days.

This sauce can be served warm or cold.

Goodness, Sweetness just typing this recipe makes me want to go make some and devour it with Pecan Ice cream or over chocolate cake!! Aha, what was my mantra again?! 'Shall eat no sweet'?!!!!! :(

Give it a try and you are going to be holding on to this recipe, I tell ya! 
Meanwhile and before you go, do leave me a comment and let me know what you think of Caramel Sauce? Are you the Chocolate Fudge type or the Caramel Sauce one?

Enjoy your day :)
