5 Ingredient Caramel Sauce



This recipe is from Pioneer Woman, on the Food Network Channel. It is an easy caramel sauce and only took about 20 minutes. I made it to eat with some apples..but frankly this tasted so good I could have just eaten it straight from the jar!

It would make a great topping for  fruit, cakes, brownies, fruit crisps, or with nothing...just on a spoon!

Here's what you need:
  • 1 c packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. half-and-half
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • pinch salt (I used salted butter so I omitted salt)
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
Mix the brown sugar, half and half, butter and pinch of salt in saucepan over medium-low heat, whisking gently for about 5-7 minutes until it starts getting thicker. (Mine was boiling gently the whole time) then whisk in the vanilla and cook another minute. Don't worry, it will get even thicker as it cools. Then turn off heat and let cool down a little bit. Pour into a jar or container with a lid, I used a canning jar - let come to room temperature before refrigerating. It makes about 1 1/2 cups. It will harden in the fridge, so you will need to warm it to make it pourable again. It got a little chewy on the ice cream, but we enjoyed it anyway...and still have all our teeth! It will keep up to 6 months in fridge...but I doubt you will have it around that long!
