Found this on Food Network. This is Bob Blumbers' recipe from The Surreal Gourmet. Tastes great with vanilla ice-cream topped with toasted hazel nuts, chocolate chips, fresh coconut wedges etc.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add water and sugar.
  2. Stir occasionally for approximately 5 minutes, or until sugar melts and turns a golden brown. (Keep a watchful eye on sugar because it will go from being golden brown to burning in about 1 minute).
  3. Immediately remove from heat and whisk in cream.
  4. Stir constantly until smooth.
  5. At this point, caramel sauce will be very thin.
  6. After it cools, it will thicken to the consistency of, well…caramel sauce.
  7. Note: when adding and stirring cream, wear an oven mitt on your stirring hand.
  8. The heat of the sugar will cause a tremendous amount of scalding steam when it comes into contact with the cream.
