MAKING
1) In a deep stainless steel pot, add the sugar, water and corn syrup together.
2) Stir with a wire whisk and cook over a low heat until bubbly.
3) As the mixture attains an amber color, keep whisking and cook for a few minutes until there are no more bubbles and the mixture gets nice color.
4) Then gradually whisk on the heavy cream, whisk continuously and cook for a few seconds until the sauce is thick and creamy.

SERVING
5) Use the Caramel sauce as a flavoring in puddings and desserts, as a filling in bonbons, or as a topping for ice cream, custard and coffee.

TIPS
Add corn syrup to prevent the sugar from crystallizing.
