so, i went to this crockpot cooking class a few weeks ago. and, it actually turned out to be very informative. like who knew you can cook a nice looking cake in a crockpot?
but, the best thing i got from the class was the recipe for “dinner in a jar” or a super yummy caramel sauce. it’s pretty much a basic caramel sauce with butter, sugar and such, but i just never thought to make my own. but, seriously the lady called it dinner in a jar, and i was quick to agree because you just find yourself eating it by the spoonful. i made a batch to go with chocolate cake and ice cream and then i decided to make a few jars for my girlfriends when they were over for dinner last night. here’s the recipe.
1/3 c. butter
1/3 c. heavy whipping cream
1 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tbs. light karo syrup
*stir all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat, just until it boils then remove. super easy.
serve with ice cream, cake, or just eat it plain like i do.* store in the refrigerator [it it lasts that long], and microwave for 20-30 seconds when serving.
