I was looking for a simple caramel sauce for a while. My mother has a fabulous recipe for caramel but it takes a long time to make and lets face it sometimes I am lazy :). So I googled and tried a few until I found this recipe. It is so easy!! And super fast. The flavor is amazing and it just SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!!!!!!! I can't get enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (yes I am using a lot of exclamation points) I want a bowl of ice cream just so I can have some. So have I made your mouth water, are you just dying to try this? Go and make some cause I am definitely not sharing :)

Kittencal's Easy Caramel Sauce or Ice Cream topping

1/2 cup butter (no substitution)
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream (unwhipped) the first time I made this I used half & half
1 tsp vanilla
In a small saucepan melt the butter, whisk in brown sugar until it is well blended(about 2 minutes). Whisk in whipping cream and cook for about another 2 minutes. Then add vanilla. This will thicken in the fridge.
(this photo is from the website, I couldn't seem to get a decent picture)
I end up cooking it for about 10 minutes total stirring almost constantly. Hope you enjoy:)
