This delicious chocolate caramel sauce is so easy to make and only requires three ingredients. 

Let’s whip up this smooth and creamy sauce:

  1. Unwrap the individual caramels of one 11 oz. bag of Kraft Caramels and place candies in a small to medium sized saucepan.
  2. Add 2/3 cup milk and two small squares (1/2 an ounce) of Baker’s Semi Sweet chocolate.
  3. Melt on low heat, stirring constantly for 15 minutes or until the caramels have melted completely.
  4. Fill two half pint mason jars with sauce.
  5. Store in the refrigerator.
  6. When ready to serve, heat in microwave for about 30 seconds, stir, pour over ice cream or other treats. 

Be patient when melting the caramels. It will seem like it is taking a long time, but keep stirring to avoid burning caramels.

Using Kraft Caramels and Baker’s Chocolate provide the perfect quality base for a yummy homemade gift.

The adorable squatty mason jars are the perfect way to add a unique flair to this delicious gift. To top off the jar trace a circle on scrapbook paper and cut it out. Slip it in between the jar lid and finish it off with some twine.
