Homemade Caramel Sauce
5 Ingredient Friday: Homemade Caramel Sauce
One day we took a walk to Franklin Square in Philadelphia. There’s a little Burger Shack there called Square Burger , and they have something called a Cake Shake. Now you know I’m ALL about cake. So of course I had to try one of these bad boys out!
The Cake Shake is a Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpet and caramel sauce blended with vanilla ice cream. And let me tell you – it’s out of this world! It costs $4.75 and I knew that I could probably make this myself at home.
So I set out to try to make my own Cake Shake (recipe coming soon!). I had the vanilla ice cream, the butterscotch krimpet, and the milk. The only thing I was missing was the caramel sauce. I’ve made my own caramel sauce before, and it was pretty simple. So instead of buying caramel sauce, I wanted to make my own. I came across a 5 ingredient recipe for Caramel Sauce , which was definitely an added bonus!

Prepare the sugar. Mix the sugar and condensed milk together in medium saucepan, and cook on medium heat until sugar is dissolved completely. Set aside.
