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!

This is an amazing caramel sauce. I made one batch (4 mins) for ice cream and coffee and another batch (5.5 minutes) for Turtle Brownies. The sauce disappeared very quickly. This will always be my caramel sauce recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Very, very good! And incredibly easy. I did boil the full 5 min because we like thick dessert sauces. This will definitely be a go to sauce from now on. Thanks so much for posting this, Elaine.

The mistake I made with this recipe, was that I made it when I was alone! I had a hard time not sitting down and eating the whole thing with a spoon! It was quick and easy to make and very delicious! I boiled it for five minutes, because I like it really caramelly!

The flavor of this is very good, but I want to try the recipe again because somehow I came up with some very grainy caramel sauce. I think I'll try it again with a candy thermometer and try to see if I can get a better result next time.
