030213-caramel.jpg There are few finer things in life than a homemade caramel sauce. It’s rich and sweet and just tastes like homemade love, doesn’t it? It’s a shame it dirties up pots and pans and takes forever to make. Well Ali has a different way of making it that takes less than 10 minutes and only dirties a single measuring cup! Woo-woo (that’s our victory noise)!

It seems like there has to be an occasion to make homemade caramel sauce. The act of sugar in a pan and the stress of it all…well, it better be someone’s birthday or possibly Christmas presents in the making. Now it doesn’t have to be any of those, it can just be a Thursday night that needs a little comfort and sweet touch.

Ali from Gimmie Some Oven always has lovely things coming out of her kitchen and this time it’s no different. She’s taken the stigma away from caramel-making and shared her recipe for making it in the microwave in a single glass measuring cup. It’s warm, it’s fresh and it’s quite possibly the finest thing to top a bowl of ice cream, brownie or anything else you can dream up. Want to see how it’s done? She has step by step photos!
