Decadent Caramel Dessert Sauce Recipe


Caramel Sauce is not difficult to make, and has dozens of uses. It can be drizzled on ice cream, cakes, cheesecakes, puddings, and other desserts. This Decadent Caramel Sauce is real caramel, and while it is a little more work to prepare than Basic Caramel Sauce, it’s well worth it because it is smooth and rich. It also stores well on the pantry shelf in an airtight container for several months.

One of the advantages of this sauce is that the cook can control the intensity of the caramel flavor. If a light caramel flavor is desired, the sugar can be cooked to a light brown. However, the darker the sugar is allowed to get, the more intense and strong the flavor in the sauce. Since this is real caramel, it is recommended for fancier desserts; the flavor is worth the effort.
