Hard to burn and a cinch to make! This sweet sauce is perfect for topping ice cream or your homemade coffee drink!
Mix sugar and cornstarch.
Add sugar mix and water to a thick-bottomed pan on medium high heat. Whisk sugar and water until smooth, but after this initial stir, don’t mix! Swirl syrup in the pan by using handles or pot holders. You can also dip a pastry brush in some cold water and swirl the syrup with that.
The sugar crystals need time to bind together, but don’t walk away! It will take a few minutes, between 5-8 (10 at most), so just continue swirling periodically. During this time prepare the butter and cream.
The mixture will continue to boil and will develop a caramel-ly color. Once the color starts deepening (mine stayed a medium color), that’s when you know it’s ready for the next step.
Add the butter and mix until melted. Wait a moment, and then add the cream. Be careful! The mixture will most likely foam up to twice its size. Mix it together and remove from heat for the final time.
Pour carefully into a glass jar for storage and use whenever you get a caramel craving!
