Caramel Sauce Fall Treats

I found a very easy caramel sauce recipe and added my own flourishes and it came out wonderful if I do say so myself.  The sauce can be used on apples, ice cream, cake etc... ( it can even just be licked out of the bowl or off your finger)

I tripled this recipe to make the large quantity that I was giving away

3/4 Cup brown sugar
3/4 Cup white sugar
1/2 Cup corn syrup
1/3 Cup Butter
2/3 Cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla

In a medium sauce pan combine brown sugar, white sugar, corn syrup and butter.  cook over medium heat stirring constantly until the mixture comes to a full rolling boil.  (It took mine about 5 minutes)

Remove from heat and let the syrup mixture cool for 5 - 8 minutes. add whipping cream and vanilla to syrup mixture , using a wire whisk mix completely.  This will make approximately 2 1/2 cups of sauce.  The sauce needs to be refrigerated and can be rewarmed.  It will last in the refrigerator 2-3 weeks.

I tripled the recipe and poured mine into the 4oz quilted jelly jars from ball .  They are about $9 a dozen at Wal-Mart. 

I put the jar in a cellophane bag with a fresh crisp Gala apple on top and added a tag and a bow!
 I will be glad to share my Happy Fall Y'all tags with anyone who would like them
