Stirring continuously use a wooden spoon to clean the sides of sauce pan . When the butter has melted and the mixture is bubbling slowly but steadily start timing 10 to 12 minutes as caramel can burn easily stir into the corners . All around the bottom steadily .
When mixture has coloured slightly and started to thickened remove from heat . Leave to cool a little.
