How to Make Way Too Easy Caramel Sauce/Dip


  1. In medium microwave proof mixing bowl, stir together all ingredients except vanilla. Microwave on high (1200 watts power microwave) for 2 minutes, stir well. Return to microwave on high for 1 minute and thirty seconds. (Watch carefully so it doesn't boil over) Stir again and return to microwave for 1 minute. Stir well and place a small amount (couple of teaspoons) on cold plate to see if texture is thick enough when cooled to room temp. If not, microwave another 30 seconds or so. Remove and add the vanilla, stir to incorporate. Set aside to cool for ice cream topping or for apple dip. Refrigerate in airtight container til use. (this will make it stiff, just zap for 10 or 20 sec to bring back to softer form)
