Yield: Yields about 3 cups.
This sauce keeps well, making it a great last-minute way to dress up dessert. Drizzle over ice cream or plain cakes; mix with nuts and spread between cake layers; pour on apple-filled crêpes or grilled pineapple.
Orange Caramel: Make the basic recipe, adding orange juice in place of the cream.
Butterscotch: Combine 2 cups light brown sugar, 12 Tbs. butter, and 4 Tbs. light corn syrup. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the sauce boils and becomes smooth. Finish as for basic recipe with 3/4 cup heavy cream and 1/2 tsp. salt.
