This caramel sauce is so easy you can make it while holding a 33 pound toddler and cleaning up broken glass.
I don’t usually go negative on BettyCupcakes. If you’re looking to TMI overshares, there are lots of other blogs for you. I figure if you’re reading BettyCupcakes, you’re interested in cake, cheese, or Tex Mex. Am I right?
With that said, let’s talk about how much I HATE HATE HATE tile kitchen floors. I’ve never broken so many dishes in my life. Since we moved here in April, we’ve lost a beer mug, at least 3 pint glasses (drinking glasses), and 2 Fiesta Ware plates.
The latest casualty? A Corelle dessert plate that I have had since college that shattered into approximately 4,289 tiny, sharp shards of glass.
Aren’t Corelle dishes supposed to be unbreakable? This particular plate survived no less than 6 moves, 8 different roommates, and up until now, a toddler.
Alas, this plate was no match for that dang tile floor. When Sam sent it crashing to its untimely demise, it didn’t stand a chance.
How hilarious is Sam’s face? He’s totally nailed the “I don’t see that giant mess…What’s happening over HERE?” look mastered at only 19 months. A prodigy, I tell ya.
Back to the caramel sauce which was happily bubbling away on the stove while I made a mad dash to pick up all the glass before Sammy finished his dinner. The recipe for Easy Caramel Sauce can be found at the Pioneer Woman’s website. Girl knows her butter and sugar combinations- this was so good. I made myself a little sundae as a reward for surviving yet another day in paradise.
Even after the first two clean ups, I was still picking up pieces of glass days later. Thankfully, no baby toes (or mama feet) were harmed in the breaking of this dish or making of this caramel sauce.
