    ElaineM's Note:

    You can use this on so many different things. By adjusting the cooking time, you can make it as thick as you like according to what you are going to use it on. I like to make it thicker to use on ice cream and thinner for desserts. I often double the recipe so I have some left over for later.

      I made a large batch of this sauce yesterday, for a relay for life fundraising/ "Make your own Sundaes" event. I made two large batches, since I wasn't sure if I doubled it what would happen. It's delicious! The recipe was easy and clear and I did boil it for 5 minutes, because once you add the evaporated milk, it thins out a bit. Now that it's cold, it's thick, so I'd follow the recipe exactly. It will be great on apples, too! Thanks!

      I had some leftover evaporated milk that needed used and I needed a caramel sauce. This recipe fit the need perfectly. I cooked it for 4 minutes. It is nice and thick from the fridge but thins as it comes to room temp. WONDERFUL. I have been drizzling it over our iced coffee since I made it.

      I also had some evaporated milk to use up. I put all of the ingredients in a 3 cup jar (that originally came with Trader Joe Marinara Sauce), microwaved it on High for one minute then mixed with my immersion blender, repeat once or twice until you're happy with it (watch it or it may boil over). Delicious!
