Microwave Caramel Sauce

Microwave Caramel Sauce

Microwave caramel sauce is the quickest way to have rich, homemade caramel sauce. No candy thermometer is needed to make this easy caramel sauce recipe, because it cooks in a microwave!

This microwave caramel sauce is the perfect go-to dessert sauce recipe. The recipe is easy to make, and the caramel sauce stays soft after cooling. Many traditional caramel candy based sauces become chewy and hard once they come to room temperature, but not this one! Traditional caramel candy sauces might be good for making candy, stuffing into things like Snicker's cupcakes, or coating caramel apples. but for me, chewy sauce on ice cream or drizzled over cake is not a yummi experience!

So, for desserts that aren’t good with a chewy caramel sauce, I use this microwave caramel sauce recipe instead.
