Okay folks, this is my go-to caramel recipe. I almost want to keep it a secret. It is that easy and delicious. If you haven’t figured this out about me yet I am a sucker for things that are awesome and easy. Does that make me lazy? Probably. Will I ever change? Doubt it.
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.
So, without further ado.
1 C. Brown Sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 C. light Karo syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
It really is that simple.
All you do is melt all the 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).
As a side note, don’t you think my sweet mother could use a new sauce pan? I think she got it for her wedding. Way to be frugal though mother dearest.
Get yourself a spoon and enjoy!
*I think it would be so cute to put this caramel in the baby canning jars to give as gifts, just enough for a few bowls of ice cream once opened.
