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.
It really is so simple. You need brown sugar, butter, Karo syrup and sweetened condensed milk. Also, like any 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.
All you do is melt 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).

*I think it would be so cute to put this in the baby canning jars to give as gifts, just enough for a few bowls of ice cream once opened.
Pin this for later?
