Gooey Caramel Sauce


The thing I love about this recipe is how simple it is. Trust me, you can make this and it is nearly foolproof.  It is delicious over ice cream or as a topping for your iced coffee.  I used it as a layer in the shortbread bars pictured above and it was fantastic.   I must warn you - it is so easy that you may find yourself making it often - and eating it right off the spoon!  It also makes a great gift.  Just pour it into canning jars and pass on the gooey goodness. 

1 cup light brown sugar
1 stick salted butter
2 Tbsp. light or dark corn syrup
2/3 cup heavy cream

1.Melt butter with brown sugar in medium saucepan over medium heat just until dissolved.
2.Add corn syrup and increase heat to medium high.  Allow mixture to bubble for 3 minutes, stirring often.
3.Add heavy cream, stir well and allow to bubble for another 3-4 minutes.
4.Remove from heat and pour into container to cool. Store in the refrigerator. Heat for 15 seconds in microwave before using.

  1. Hi Misty! You won the Style, Sex, and Substance giveaway on my blog. I emailed you for your address but haven't heard back, and I wondered if maybe my message ended up in your spam box. Please email me if you are still interested in it!

  2. Misty, your food pics are sooooo delicious looking! I'm not cooking so much this year, since hubby is deployed and I'm not in my own kitchen...but I will still be reading your blog in a year, when I have my own space back. I love all your food posts (and your others too, of course). And your photography is beautiful. =)

    1. Thank you so much Elisa. You just made my day! I hope you do make this caramel because it is truly the easiest thing to make and tastes like it took hours. :) I will see you on Thursday for your nature walk link-up!

  3. This looks wonderful, I am drooling! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday!
    Come Back Soon,
    Miz Helen
