Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Corn syrup 2 Tablespoon (1
Water 2 Tablespoon
Heavy cream 1 Cup (16 tbs) (35% fat whipping cream)



1. In a heavy bottom pan, add sugar, water, and corn syrup.

2. Place the pan on medium heat, whisk and cook the mixture until sugar dissolves, and it turns golden brown.

3. Turn off the heat, and add cream, all at once to it. Mix to combine.

4. Allow the mixture to cool, and then put it in refrigerator.


5. Serve caramel sauce with vanilla ice cream.
