Caramel Dipping Sauce

I follow a blog called How Does She.  It features a wide range of ideas for enriching everyday life.  Recently they posted a most wonderful recipe for caramel dipping sauce.  It is called "Aunt Kay's Dipping Sauce"  It is really simple to make and when I put it in pretty  Mason jars it will make a lovely little gift.

Here is the recipe for Aunt Kay's Dipping Sauce from HowDoesShe.com:

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (I added this because desserts need vanilla!!)

*Makes 2 1/2 cups
In a medium saucepan combine sugars, syrup and butter.
Cook over medum heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a full boil, about 5 – 6 minutes.
Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes.
Stir in whipping cream.
Pour into a jar and store in refrigerator.  It will thicken when cold.

When all the caramel sauce is gone you can make some more, or use the jar to make an easy baking soda air freshener.
