DIRECTIONS

  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add water and sugar.
  • 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).
  • Immediately remove from heat and whisk in cream.
  • Stir constantly until smooth.
  • At this point, caramel sauce will be very thin.
  • After it cools, it will thicken to the consistency of, well…caramel sauce.
  • Note: when adding and stirring cream, wear an oven mitt on your stirring hand.
  • The heat of the sugar will cause a tremendous amount of scalding steam when it comes into contact with the cream.
