Brown Sugar Caramel Sauce

Raven Higheagle


This is a simple Brown Sugar Caramel Sauce, using brown sugar gives it a depth of flavor without browning the sugar. This is a great method to use because, my browned sugar usually turns into burned sugar! This Caramel Sauce is great over ice cream, cakes, Pound Cakes, pancakes and waffles. Once you try it, you’ll want to keep a jar full in your fridge at all times.
