Why Make Caramel Sauce From Scratch?

From scratch is almost always better in my opinion. Caramel sauce is no exception. Here’s why.

  • Better flavor. Homemade caramel sauce has incomparably better flavor than store-bought renditions that are often sickly sweet and lack flavor.
  • Consistency. Making caramel sauce from scratch means you have control. Store-bought sauces are often very thin and don’t work well for all uses. They are typically in the section with ice cream toppings, because they work well for that, but not as well for other things. This homemade caramel sauce is perfect for all kinds of desserts.
  • It’s quicker and surprisingly easy. Sure you could run grab a jar of caramel sauce from the store, but that would take you at least 20 minutes. This homemade version only takes 10 minutes of active time (plus some for cooling) and the instructions are super easy to follow.
