I got this recipe from a magazine many years ago. The tubs of caramel sauce made for dipping your apples into are expensive (at least for this mom) and this was a homemade version. Our family loves it.
- 1 1⁄2 cups brown sugar
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 1⁄2 cup corn syrup
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon. butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- Combine sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and corn syrup and cook until sugar is thoroughly dissolved and cooked. Add water and cook until bubbly. Add butter and vanilla and cook 5 more minutes. Be careful not to burn the sugar.
Taste was pretty good but the consistency was cloying and grainy...even after 45+ min stirring constantly on a low heat. There has got to be an easier way....with a more even and creamy consistency.
