Homemade Caramel Sauce ~ Delicious Homemade Caramel Sauce that will have you Licking the Spoon!
I’m in love. It’s not with my husband. Well it is, but I have another love. It’s this caramel sauce. Seriously you guys. You HAVE to make it. I know you are saying Julie it’s just a caramel sauce really it can’t be that good. I can just go buy that at the store and it will be fine.
No. No. No. It won’t. I was that person previously. The person that bought the caramel sauce in a jar at the grocery store and it was fine. That’s it. Fine.
Now this caramel sauce my friends is EPIC. Hands down the bestest caramel sauce I’ve ever had. I know bestest isn’t a word, but just pretend with me today that is because I’m trying to describe the epicness of this caramel sauce. Wait. Epicness probably isn’t a word either. Just roll with it.
I do not keep heavy whipping cream in my fridge. I don’t use it enough to. In the best two weeks I’ve bought it TWICE just to make this caramel sauce which I’ve made THREE times. Do you get how in love I am yet?
I’ve drenched Pumpkin Bread in caramel sauce. That’s where this began and the recipe will be up in a little bit. Then I was dreaming of it so I made it for ice cream because that’s what pregnant people do. Then I was going to make an Overnight Apple French Toast and I was like duh it needs caramel sauce and I made it again. No brainer right? Then I had some apples so obviously those were to healthy so I made some more caramel sauce to smother my apples in and it was fantastic.
Are you going to get make this yet? Good. Go. Now. Stat. Your life will be complete.
