Homemade Caramel Sauce

Love love love this sauce, it's perfect for dipping apples slices, putting over ice cream or as an addition to other desserts. It's super easy to make, the only tricky part is knowing exactly when to remove it from the heat. The best tip I can give is to remove it as soon as you see noticeable color in the syrup. It will darken considerably when the cream is added.
