CARA MIA CARAMEL

When the new caramel Milky Way candy bar appeared in stores I was ecstatic.  I always liked the regular Milky Way candy, for its smooth silky taste (although everybody else considered me a fool, preferring Snickers). The new caramel Milky Way, is actually an improvement, and the reason why is simply the caramel itself.  Years ago when I was small, you could get those individually wrapped caramels which were good, but caramel by itself is not as good as when mixed with or put over something, like cake or pudding.

I like caramel on vanilla ice cream, and often make an easy caramel sauce. It is wonderful on bread or rice puddings, or cinnamon raisin toast too.

Caramel Sauce    makes about ¾ cup

½ stick (2 ounces or 4 tablespoons) butter
¼ cup dark brown sugar
¼ cup regular granulated sugar
¼ cup heavy cream

Put all the ingredients in a saucepan, stirring well
Bring to a boil over medium heat while stirring
When it starts to boil, stop stirring and let boil for 2 minutes
Remove from heat and let cool
Keep it covered, do not refrigerate unless not using for 24 hours

Keep this simple treat in mind to enhance many desserts.
