This month I received Lick That Spoon.  What a fun blog.  I often make salted caramel, but had never tried it with brown sugar.  Definitely a very sweet version but loved just the same! And super easy to make! Thanks for a great sauce!


 
CARAMEL SAUCE
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp butter
large pinch of salt

Add the water and sugar to a medium saucepan, and stir to combine. Place
over a low heat until the sugar dissolves, refrain from stirring.
Increase the temperature to a medium heat and boil for about 5 minutes
until the sauce turns a golden brown. Using a swirling motion, move the
saucepan around  to stir the sauce. Be sure to keep a close eye on the
sauce as it can easily burn at this point. Remove from heat and slowly
add cream and vanilla essence. At this point the caramel will
solidify–then add the butter and the salt. Return to the stove on a low
heat, stirring continually until the ingredients are well incorporated
the sauce becomes a smooth caramel. Cool for at least four hours, then
bottle and refrigerate. Sauce will become thicker on cooling and
refrigeration.


Makes approximately 3 cups of delicious caramel.
