Happy National Caramel Day

Making your own caramel is so much easier than I had anticipated. The basic ingredients you need are granulated sugar and butter (you can also use heavy whipping cream if making a sauce). Then you'll just need a sauce pan, wax paper and patience because (a) you don't want to burn the caramel sauce and (b) the ice cream really isn't going anywhere and you wouldn't want to overdo it, right?

Check out David Leibovitz's step-by-step photo instructions and make your own perfect caramel sauce! After all, tomorrow is National Caramel Popcorn Day and practice makes perfect.

Tonight, we added vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and walnuts to our sculptural caramel pieces.
