Caramel Sauce

Caramel SauceFinally, for our Christmas dessert, Patrick specifically requested caramel.  I have a recipe for simple and delicious caramel sauce, so we whipped up a batch and poured it over sliced bananas for dessert.  A perfect end to a perfect meal.

Here’s what you will need:

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup half and half

1/2 stick butter (4 tablespoons)

pinch of salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

Here’s what you do:

1.  Combine the sugar, half and half, butter and salt in a sauce pan and whisk together over low heat until the butter is fully melted and the mixture has thickened a bit, about 7 to 10 minutes.Making caramel sauce

2.  Add the vanilla, and cook about another 3-5 minutes until the mixture is slightly thicker.

3.  Refrigerate the mixture to allow it to firm up a bit more until you are ready to serve.  (I think this is best served warm.)
