    This did not work for me. I stirred the sugar and water for at least 30 minutes before anything happened. Eventually all the liquid evaporated and the sugar started to harden. I soldiered on with the rest of the recipe and the sauce ended up with pea size nuggets of hard sugar in it. I just strained those out and the remaining sauce tastes ok but it sure wasn't pretty getting there. I am not a novice cook but I somehow botched this recipe.

    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!

    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.
