Making caramel sauce at home is not at all difficult, and I personally prefer homemade over store bought. Just few ingredients and your sweet buttery yummylicious caramel sauce is ready.

Here is the list of ingredients you need:

For Caramel Sauce

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Method:
  • Combine sugar and water in a heavy-duty saucepan. 
  • Cook over medium-high heat, until mixture comes to a boil. 
  • Continue to boil, without stirring, for 10 to 14 minutes, tilting pan occasionally to keep colour even until mixture turns a deep amber colour. 
  • Remove from heat stir in condensed milk (mixture will foam up) do not scrape sides of pan. Add 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, one tablespoon at a time, stirring well after each addition. 
  • Stir in remaining butter and vanilla extract until smooth.
For Milkshake

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup Caramel Sauce
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/2 apple peeled
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
Method:
Process all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Serve and top with additional Caramel Sauce, if desired.
Notes:

  • Monitoring the heat and constantly stirring when adding condensed milk and butter will give you just the right consistency.
  • Caramel sauce does not take much time to cook, but make sure it is completely cool before you use it in your shake or any other dessert.
