Aunt Kay’s Buttery Caramel Sauce

Since getting my first Bountiful Basket, I have started following an awesome blog called Basket 411 (I have their button on my sidebar for a quick link.). Their motto is "Your one stop shop for all the information you'll need to make the most of your Bountiful Basket." and their goal is "No more fruits and veggies from your Bountiful Basket will end up in your waste basket!". These are the reasons why I think this is such an awesome blog! On Tuesday they posted a recipe for Aunt Kay’s Buttery Caramel Sauce to use with the apples we got in last Saturday's basket. I made the recipe last night and not only was it super easy, but it was DELICIOUS! Savannah was there and she was using her finger to lick the pan clean and Andrew was eating whole spoonfuls of the caramel sauce out of the jar with a spoon. ;) It was also delicious on the apples and was a great way to use them. It made a lot (2 1/2 cups) so there was plenty to send a jar home with Savannah and keep a jar for us. Happy Dipping!

Aunt Kay’s Buttery Caramel Sauce


3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup corn syrup

1/3 cup butter

2/3 cup whipping cream

*Makes 2 1/2 cups

In a medium saucepan combine sugars, syrup and butter.

Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a full boil, about 5 – 6 minutes.

Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes.

Stir in whipping cream.

Pour into a jar and store in refrigerator. It will thicken when cold.
