Homemade Caramel Sauce-serve it over ice cream, add it to milkshakes or stir it in your morning coffee!
I make a lot of homemade ice cream. With 3 kids in the house, it doesn’t last long. So I also buy a lot of ice cream. I usually go for the big gallon party buckets of ice cream. Vanilla and Chocolate. Good things can always start with one of those flavors.
The cheap ice cream, of course, isn’t as good as some of the other brands but if you could see my son scoop out his helping of ice cream, you’d know why I need to go cheap. He doesn’t even use a bowl. He uses a giant glass. Fills it with the ice cream, then adds milk. The lazy man’s milkshake. The kids don’t mind the cheap ice cream. They’re just happy to have ice cream during the summer.
Now that doesn’t mean, they wouldn’t like something a little tastier. Ice cream is easy to doctor up. Add some fresh fruit, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries-whatever you have on hand. Crush some cookies, or add some nuts. Chocolate Syrup or Hot Fudge sauce, always a winner.
And then there’s Caramel Sauce. Don’t get me wrong. I love my chocolate. But sometimes you need a change up. This caramel sauce stays soft, even straight from the fridge. With a rich vanilla flavor, it’s creamy, ooey gooey yumminess. In a jar. In the fridge. Ready any time for your ice cream or any other dessert you’d like to drizzle it over.

Below is what your boiling sugar will look like at the beginning stage and when it’s ready, that golden amber color, ready to be turned into caramel!
When the jar is almost empty, don’t keep trying to scrape your caramel out. Instead, just add some hot coffee and stir. Caramel Coffee! I might be slightly addicted to having my coffee this way the past few weeks.
