I almost always have chocolate sauce around, but caramel sauce is practically nonexistent and until recently I had no idea how to make it. I thought it'd be hard or that I wouldn't have the ingredients on hand. (Who keeps heavy cream on hand all the time?)
I stumbled upon this recipe and was instantly hooked. Here was a caramel sauce that I could make whenever I wanted! Now that summer is here, ice cream sundaes will be a frequent dessert. Of course there is also the holiday weekend coming up. Gotta make sundaes for that too.
