This caramel sauce always reminds me of my mom. She's the one that taught it to me way back when and I wish I could say it was passed down through generations of grandmas, but she got the recipe from a lady she bowled with when I was little. I know, really moving story.
I don't care how it came about, it's damn good. Like, eat-it-straight-off-the-spoon-over-and over, good. I've made other versions, but it just doesn't stand up to this one. There is something different and amazing about it and I can't put my finger on it. We even did a taste test at a family gathering with my other favorite caramel recipe and this one was the clear winner. Bowling lady knows what she's talking about.
I've dipped apples in this, put it on top of cupcakes, on top of ice cream, over popcorn and my favorite- licked it off the spoon. I've put it in mason jars and given it as gifts too, it's quite the little treat. I'm going to claim it as a long time family recipe, feel free to steal it as your own as well.
What is your favorite treat to pour caramel over? Give this a try and let me know what you think of this slightly different, but amazingly good caramel recipe. Then head over to @lolosdesserts and check out what I'm baking.
