Never Fail Caramel Sauce

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is a fast, easy and delicious recipe that just can't fail. The making of caramel sauce can be fraught with drama, but this simple recipe, developed by The Slow Roasted Italian will end all of that. Her recipe and gorgeous photographs can be found here. I can add nothing to it, but I did want to talk to you about cooking the sauce. I let it begin to steam before I set the timer for 5 minutes. My sauce also required an extra 3 minutes to thicken in the last step of the recipe. At that point it lightly napped a spoon. The sauce will not truly thicken until it is refrigerated and the butter sets it up, so don't be alarmed if your sauce looks runny at this point. Once made and brought to room temperature the sauce can be refrigerated and will keep for there for a week. You will love it. Here it is how it is made.

Not to split hairs over this lovely looking recipe, but using brown sugar rather than caramelized white sugar makes this a butterscotch sauce. Yum!
