This recipe is one my Kellie created. She created it when she was 8. I think that's pretty amazing....but then again, I love to create recipes and maybe she's going to be like that too!! It's a short one that doesn't involve a lot of ingredients, as those are the best kind of recipes! We always have this stuff on hand at our house because I bake a LOT. I'm not quite sure how much this is per serving, but I know that it is ridiculously cheap for our family, and you know we have a BIG family!! So here it is!
Kellie's Karamel Sauce:
1 can sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk!!!)
1 C firmly packed brown sugar
2 stick butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
In a small pan, melt butter of low heat. DO NOT let butter come to a boil or scorch! When butter is melted, add brown sugar and condensed milk. Simmer gently, WITHOUT BOILING, until melted and combined, about 10 or 15 minutes. Stir the sauce a lot. Add vanilla and salt. Let sauce simmer for about 15 more minutes. The sauce is done when it is no longer grainy but smooth and coats the back of a spoon.
We use this sauce on ice cream (of course) but it can also be drizzled over apple pie and used in shakes. I personally love it over my gluten-free brownies and on my gluten-free pumpkin chocolate cake!! We love the buttery, salty taste and the thickness of this sauce. I hope you enjoy it!!
