DIY Caramel Sauce

Yield Makes 1 cup
Making your own caramel sauce is quicker than a trip to the store--and it's easy too.


  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup whipping cream

How to Make It

  1. Cook sugar with butter in a heavy saucepan over high heat, stirring until amber-hued, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in whipping cream (it'll bubble up). Cook, stirring, until it boils. Keeps 1 month, chilled.
