Homemade Caramel

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar (we like dark brown sugar best!)
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. In a 2-quart saucepan, melt butter on low heat.

2. Add brown sugar, corn syrup, and milk, stirring to combine. Increase heat to medium (or perhaps just below medium).

3. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil.* Use a spoon that won't melt -- the caramel gets pretty hot!

4. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla.

5. Serve warm or cold with apple slices, or drizzle over ice cream, i have also seen this same recipe poured over popcorn, i also use this recipe for caramel brownie bars and chocolate caramel bars, recipes posted under desserts.
