Caramel has always been one of my favorite flavors in anything sweet or related to dessert. It’s also one of my favorite additions in coffee drinks. I have a hard time resisting caramel covered popcorn or caramel flavored snacks as well! If I had known how easy it was to make caramel sauce then I would have made it more often (which may not be the best for my waist though!) This home-made caramel sauce is healthier in the sense that it doesn’t contain any preservatives, artificial colors, or flavors. You can use this caramel sauce to add a bit more indulgence in your dessert or drinks!~
