One thing my kids love on their ice cream is caramel sauce and this month I had a goal to learn how to make caramel sauce at home.  If you take a look at the back of the bottle of store bought caramel sauce, you will see a label that is full of items that you cannot even pronounce (this always scares me).  I love feeding my kids healthy foods, but also love to share special sweet treats with them as well.

I figured I may as well learn how to make my own because at least I know what is in there.

Now that I know how to make caramel sauce, I wanted to share my homemade recipe with you – it is much better than store bought AND made with only 4 ingredients!

I made it with ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter’ this time, they came out with a new simple ingredients recipe and I got it on sale.  The results were AMAZING!
