Home-Made Caramel Sauce


Who doesn’t absolutely LOVE a good caramel sauce?! Have you ever tried making your own at home? Making your own caramel sauce is super easy! And once you try it, you’ll never go back to the bottled variety. This super easy recipe requires just SIX ingredients and it’s perfect for drizzling over coffee drinks, cakes and desserts. For a thicker caramel to use in frosting, simply refrigerate the sauce overnight!

I love to use this sauce for all my dessert recipes that call for caramel. Even for my caramel frosting recipe, which original calls for dulce de leche. I just refrigerate the sauce overnight and it thickens to the perfect consistency. This sauce is also great for adding to your favorite coffee drinks, drizzling over your ice cream, even eating by the spoonful if you so desire.

Make sure to watch my video recipe for all the details!

Ahh, I could eat my screen right now! That little drizzle of caramel sauce going down the side looks soo good!
