Caramel Sauce with Milk | Caramel Sauce Recipe (1)

Growing up I used to love those little parcels of chocolate-covered caramel candies. And yes the ones without the chocolate too. Little did I know they were so easy to make. But times were different back then, no one probably made these treats at home here in India.

Without the luxury of the ‘www‘ there were no food blogs or videos, so we were always left with the processed packed ones. It was only when I started making some caramel sauce with milk at home, I knew how worlds apart homemade and packed ones are.

Diet and Allergen Information:

This sauce contains milk so it is not for people with lactose intolerant also not vegan. (But there is an alternative method given down below). It goes without saying that this salted caramel sauce with milk is not very healthy. It has sugar and hence lots of carbohydrates.

So in moderation or occasionally this is a great option to go with any of your desserts. On the other hand, this sauce is Gluten-free, vegetarian, and very shelf-stable.

Variations and Substitutions:

You can make this sauce with oat-milk or almond milk to make it lactose-free or vegan. Other milk like coconut milk isn’t the right fit here, but I’ll let you guys know when I get a good batch with it.

You can add a bit of cinnamon additionally or in place of vanilla extract. Vanilla extract can be totally skipped.
