This is a good sauce for ice cream, as well as for drizzling on cakes, cheesecakes, or puddings. Since caramel and chocolate go well together, this is a good choice to pour over Brownie Sundaes along with either Decadent Chocolate Truffle Sauce, or Hot Fudge Toppings. Basic Caramel Sauce will keep a week or two if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Microwave for 30 seconds or so before serving.
