For the longest time, I have searched and looked for a recipe to make the perfect Caramel Sauce at home! The sauce that is rich, buttery, delicious and caramel-y. I know, that sounds silly. It’s a Caramel Sauce, so have to be Caramel-y! 😂… Well I am in a happy place since after many trials and errors, I have hit a jackpot. Here is the Ultimate Caramel Sauce Recipe – Rich & Delicious! 😋

It was so delish that I licked the last layer of the sauce from the saucepan, that I cooked it in! As I was licking my fingers, while emptying the pan, my older one {Aanya} walked into the room and caught me red handed! She is the biggest fan of Caramel Sauce and often uses it as a dip with fresh apple slices! Doesn’t that sound yumm? It screams fall for me. As a matter of fact, Pittsburgh is already hitting Autumn, with chilly mornings and foliage turning colors to deeper hues.

When it is chilly and cold out there, you can’t imagine how a rich and delicious warm Caramel Sauce, weave a magic on you. It is almost dream like!  The velvety creamy texture coats your tongue and warms up your heart! It tickles the old school romance in your bones and fills you up with joy.

My mom loves to use the caramel sauce in mango custard caramel pudding. That is one delicious dessert if you ask me.

When I came to America, about 16 years ago, my first encounter with caramel sauce was with apples. Never in my dream could have I imagined to use caramel sauce with apples. But man, that is one exquisite toothsome experience. The moment your teeth dig in the caramelized candied apples, it is heaven altogether. One can often find the caramel sauce/dip tubs placed next to apples in the grocery stores.

From the time, my oldest grew fondness for caramel sauce, I had been struggling to make it at home. I am a cautious consumer and read the ingredients carefully (most of the time), when it comes to shopping for my kids. And honestly, these market bough products have so many additives and preservatives that can be easily avoided when you make it at home and that too under 5 minutes. You can’t beat that! Can you?

Pundits believe that CARAMEL originated from Latin word Calamellus, which means sugar cane. Caramel is a confectionery product that is medium to dark brown in color and is made by heating a variety of sugars. It is used as a flavoring in puddings and desserts as well as filling in chocolates etc. [source – wiki]

Caramel sauce is made by mixing caramelized sugar with cream. This further has many adaptations and can be made with addition of butter, fruit purees, vanilla, liquors and more. [source – wiki]

Author Sonal Gupta @ simplyvegetarian777


  • Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup

  • Milk - 2 tbsp


  • Take a heavy bottom sauce pan. Add sugar, butter and milk to the pan.
  • Bring it to a gentle boil, on medium high heat.
  • Reduce the flame to medium and cook it until it thickens, for about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Remove it from heat and use as desired.


  • This is such a less quantity that I doubt there will be any leftover to store.
  • If there are any leftovers, just cool it and refrigerate in an air tight glass jar.
  • For reusing it, take it out and keep the glass jar in warm water to loosen it and use. OR add 1 -2 tsp hot milk. Shake well and use.
