Caramel Sauce

Caramel Sauce hidden in a chocolate cupcake, how does that sound to you?

Let me tell you that it is divine. Caramel sauce is not only meant to decorate your ice cream or have apple slices dipped into. My advice – try to hide it into your favorite baked goods as a special surprise!

I will post the chocolate cupcake and the frosting recipe pretty soon. The caramel sauce injected cupcake placed first in Tracy’s cupcake challenge a few weeks ago.


* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup water
* 1/4 cup light corn syrup
* 3/4 cup whipping cream


Combine sugar, 1/2 cup water, and corn syrup in heavy medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat and boil without stirring until mixture turns a deep amber color, occasionally brushing down sides of pan with wet pastry brush and swirling pan, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Carefully add cream (you may want to stand back — mixture will bubble vigorously). Stir sauce over low heat until any caramel bits dissolve and sauce is smooth. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Rewarm over medium-low heat just until pourable, then let caramel sauce cool to room temperature.)

I did a very similar cupcake the other week. Check them out at A Spoon Full of Sugar. They turned out amazingly! Though I didn't fill them with caramel.

You are killing me with all this caramel. It's my favorite candy indulgence. Love the new look.

Kirsten-That is one good looking caramel sauce.
So perfect, and just the right consistency. Nothing compares to home made caramel sauce. I make mine the same way too. Love the photos of it, as well.
p.s. you know it's perfect when it clings to the spoon, and you proved that! Yumm!
