Since the holidays are upon us, I wanted to share a nice and easy gift idea. When I'm not creating art, my other passion is cooking. I not only come up with my own recipes, I also get many great recipes from online.
One of my favorite recipe sites is Bettycrocker.com. Now I love sweets and baked goods, but unlike cooking where you can add a pinch here and there, baking requires measurments. I might be a great cook, but I will admit baking is not my speciality. Because of this, I turn to recipe sites like Betty Crocker, to help me.
This recipe called Divine Caramel Sauce, is easy and for any beginner. It also makes a great last minute gift idea. Make sauce and place in a glass jar. Place a bow, bells, or even an ornament for an added holiday decoration
Ready in 45 minutes.
1 cup light corn syrup
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1cup whipping (heavy) cream
In 2-quart saucepan, heat corn syrup, brown sugar and butter to boiling over low heat, stirring constantly. Boil 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in whipping cream; heat to boiling. Cool about 30 minutes. Serve warm. Store covered in refrigerator up to 2 months. Reheat slightly before serving if desired.
