This sauce is for the caramel lover—like myself! It’s equally wonderful over ice cream, yellow cake or apple pie. It is just thick enough when hot, but not clumpy or sticky as it cools on the plate. Don’t be afraid of making caramel. If you follow the simple but important rules below it will be easy. Do be careful when making it not to have any small children about and to give it your undivided attention. Caramel burns are extremely painful.
