Homemade Caramel Sauce
1/2 cup salted butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup heavy cream
n a heavy bottom saucepan, combine butter and honey.
Bring to a boil and cook, stirring frequently with a whisk, until it turns a dark caramel color.
Remove from burner and add cream, (be careful, it will splatter) and stir well to combine.
The caramel sauce will thicken as it stands.
*Notes: If your caramel seizes (clumps) up when adding the cream, put it back over low heat and carefully whisk until smooth again.
