Recipe Comments & Reviews

Have to show this to Hubby too! Sweet treat for sundaes and just homemade whipped cream. This is the BEST! In no way did I expect to get such a homemade and rich sauce. I made it with organic Brown crystals (in leui of commercialized C&H types)and pure butter, heavy whip cream at the end. I DO want to vary my next batch with coconut sugar. I also added some vanilla extract. Fabulous caramel sauce recipe! I don't use chews or hardened caramel candies, I could make a good batch of my own, but think about saving my dental crowns!
Made this recipe for an ice cream party to celebrate my daughter's graduation. It was sooooo delicious, it didn't last very long! I am sharing it with friends and will make it again and again! Delicious!
