Caramel Sauce

Lately, I have been practicing my caramel sauce and this Swissmilk recipe variation I had the best experience with. It also is immensely variable; depending on how long you let it simmer at the end you can use it as a sauce topping on ice-cream or dessert or as a bread spread topped with banana’s…
