Also, like all the other recipes I’ll post on this blog, it is cost effective. I always have all these ingredients on hand (granted, the Karo syrup is only on hand for this very recipe, but still). You can use this caramel in a multitude of ways. My two favorites are caramel popcorn and caramel sundaes. Not your thing? Cake? Brownies? Dip for apples? Yes, yes and yes.
Aunt Val’s Caramel
- 1 C . Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 C . light Karo syrup
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
Melt all ingredients in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
Once caramel is boiling, cook for approximately two minutes stirring constantly.
If using for caramel popcorn: Pour over popcorn immediately (this recipe will cover three bags of microwave popcorn thoroughly.)
