Caramel Sauce


by: momma

Homemade Caramel Sauce is so quick and easy to make at home, you'll never need to buy anything like it ever again!! It can replace butterscotch topping for ice cream and the extremely pricey sauces they sell in the produce section to dip their apples in, and of course, this can be used over your homemade Bread Pudding!! The next-best thing is that there are all of FIVE ingredients, with no impossible-to-pronounce (much less understand) chemicals!! And it keeps just fine in a covered container in the fridge!! Of course, it probably won't be sitting around long enough for that to even be an issue!! Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 4 - 6 minutes Total time: 9 - 11 minutes Servings: 8 Total cost: $2.85 Cost/serving: $0.36
