he fall season is here and it’s time to make caramel sauce! It’s rich, velvety, and so delicious! Caramel sauce can be used as a topping, a filling, or to make caramel apples! You only need 4 ingredients plus the flavoring of your choice. Your friends and family will be asking for more!

Ingredients

  • 1 stick of butter (8 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1 can of condensed milk (14 oz)
  • Flavoring of your choice: cinnamon, cardamom, chai mix, vanilla extract & sea salt, etc.

Directions

Step 1:
1- On medium heat, place 1 stick of butter (which is 8 tablespoons), in a saucepan.
2- Add ½ a cup of brown sugar – notice how it is packed into the measuring cup. That’s the way you need to measure brown sugar.
3- Then add ½ a cup of honey.
4- Mix well and let the butter, sugar, and honey cook on medium heat until they start boiling.
5- Once the mixture start boiling, stir constantly, and let it boil for 2 minutes.

Step 2:
1- Reduce the heat to low-medium, and add 1 can, which is 14 ounces, of condensed milk. I am using fat free condensed milk as we are already using butter!
2- Now the fun part! Flavor your caramel with the spice of your choice: Cardamom, Chai mix, or vanilla and sea salt!
3- Let the caramel cook on low-medium heat for 3 minutes while stirring constantly. Do not let it boil.

Step 3:
1- And that’s it! Pour your caramel in a jar and store it in the fridge. If you need warm caramel, just microwave the amount you need  before using it.
