Homemade Caramel Sauce

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tb light corn syrup
1 ts. Water
1 ts. Vanilla

Microwave cream in micro cooker on high 30-40 seconds or until hot; set aside. Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in (2qu) saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat 4-5 minutes or until sugar is melted, stirring occasionally using bamboo spoon. Reduce heat to low. Stir syrup until honey colored and remove pan from heat. Slowly add cream (mixture will bubble dramatically), stirring constantly until smooth. Add vanilla and salt. Cool 5-10 minutes before serving.

Yield 3/4 cup (12 servings)
Cook’s Tip: to check color of sugar syrup, place a small drop of syrup onto a white paper plate. Repeat until honey color is achieved.
