With Valentine's Day fast approaching...
I always make up a batch of
homemade vanilla caramel sauce for my sweetheart!
This sauce is so yummy, you will never
buy store bought ever again!
It's that good... Trust Me!
You need a large saucepan
and 1 cup of sugar
Turn on stove to medium heat and let sugar begin to melt.
Watch closely so the sugar doesn't get to brown too quickly and burn.
Your sugar should melt and turn a golden amber color
Next, you will stir in your 1 1/4 cup heavy cream & 1 vanilla bean
or 1 tsp. vanilla into the pan with the melted sugar.
Stir quickly, your sugar will clump once you
pour the cold milk mixture into the sugar.
That's okay, keep stirring.
It takes awhile to get the clump of hardened sugar to melt.
Don't give up, just keep stirring!
Once your sauce is all combined, let it cool.
Pour into a jar and store in the refrigerator
until ready to use.
This sauce is perfect over ice cream,
cream puffs, cake
and even apples!
Mmm... Doesn't it look heavenly?
I hope you try it for yourself!
