What‘s the first thing you think of when you hear the words “caramel sauce?”
If you’re like most people, you’d say “ice cream” or “sundae.”
But beyond an ice cream topping, caramel is a pretty universal dessert sauce.
Dip fresh fruit in it—a caramel fondue
Drizzle it over baked apples, sautéed bananas or poached pears
Shake it up with popcorn for delicious caramel corn
Use it as a topping for brownies, cheesecake, chocolate cake, crêpes, pound cake or pudding
Drizzle it over apple pie
Make caramel-swirl brownies or semifreddo
Add it to s’mores or spread onto shortbread for a gourmet twist
Eat it right from the jar
