Caramel Sauce

Caramel. You can sense comfort by just pronouncing the word. Today I’m sharing a very simple and delicious recipe for caramel sauce.

You can use it on your pancakes, pies, ice cream, milkshake, and to be honest I personally love to pour some while hot on vanilla or coffee cake, but that’s just me.

Some adds few drops of vanilla in their caramel sauce but I like to smell and taste pure caramel.

The amount of butter used might be too much for some, but you have to remember that caramel sauce is very sweet and you really need to have just few drizzles.

OK, time to go back to business, so here I give you a very simple and absolutely amazing caramel sauce!
