Easy Maple Caramel Sauce

"This maple caramel sauce is so incredibly easy--only two ingredients! I originally made it to drizzle over smoked pork chops but quickly realized it could also be served over ice cream (or your favorite dessert). It's so buttery-smooth and decadent. Yum!"

Ready In:
1/3 cup




  • Melt together maple syrup and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stirring with a wooden spoon, cook over medium heat for 10-12 minutes until the sauce thickens to the consistency of a smooth caramel sauce. If necessary, whisk to thoroughly incorporate melted butter.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. As it cools, a thin skin may form on top. Just stir it once more with your wooden spoon before drizzling over your food of choice.
  • Left-overs can be refrigerated and re-heated for 20-30 seconds in the microwave--that is if you have any. :).

<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
