      This caramel sauce should be outlawed it is so incredibly good. It is very rich and tastes like heaven. It was pretty easy to make, although I think I could have let it caramelize a little longer, but I was worried it would burn. I'm looking forward to drizzling a bit in my coffee in the morning, that way I can get a high-end coffee flavor without the high price.

      This took me three tries....<br/><br/>The first time, the sugar burned VERY quickly. (I suppose that was my own fault, obviously) For those who have never burned sugar, it's a smell so horrible, it's worse than some harsh chemicals!<br/><br/><br/>.... The second time, the sugar wasn't caramalized when I added the cream. Instead of giving up, though, I kept cooking it. Eventually it did turn. I added half the cream, then I added the rest of the cream, stirring constantly. It started to brown VERY quickly. <br/><br/><br/> I didn't know what would come of it, but in the end it did taste like caramel. I added some cinnamon to the caramel; it was so good! I'll make it again, but this time I'll try not to be so impatient. I'll post a review again then. For now, it's delish!
