Caramel is one of my favourite flavours but I am fairly picky about what caramel I like. This one ticks all of the boxes.
Step 1: Ingredients and Utensils
You will need
A can of condensed milk (try to not drink the entire can before you start)
1/3 cup of brown sugar
50 grams butter
and about 10-20 minutes of time to constantly stir.
Step 2: Cook It
Add all ingredients to the saucepan and cook over a low-medium heat stirring constantly. If you don't stir the entire time you will get brown burned bits on the bottom.
This also gets really hot so you need to be careful if you want to keep tasting it (it is hard to resist).
After about 10-15 minutes this should start to get thick. If it doesn't start to get quite thick after about 10 minutes turn up your heat.
It thickens more on cooling, so, if you want this for on top of ice cream stop a little early (when it still drips/runs), for tarts or other desserts where a thick mix is necessary you don't want it to drip or run.
I will also be adding a recipe for easy tarts using this caramel.
