Home 30 minutes or less Easy Caramel Sauce

We LOVE ice cream at our house. It is one of our favorite treats to enjoy year round, but we especially love it in the summer. Plus, July is #nationalicecreammonth ! We all have our own favorite ice cream, but we can always all agree upon vanilla. With a vanilla, then everyone can top it the way they like it, like with this easy caramel sauce.

Caramel is one of the staple toppings. I keep it on hand to drizzle over a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Sure you could always buy a jar from the store, but homemade is so much better!

This version is ready in under 10 minutes and can be stored in the fridge for about a week. You can keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just don’t place it in a glass container. Place it in a plastic container and give it enough room to expand when it freezes. If you fill a glass container, it can break if this easy caramel sauce expands too much when frozen.
