              Creamy Caramel Coffee Step 1

Make the caramel sauce. Warm heavy cream for caramel sauce in a microwave and set aside. Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and gently stir until sugar completely dissolves. Cook mixture over medium heat.

Tip: Caramel sauce makes a fun topping for coffee drinks! When drizzling it over cream toppings, make sure the sauce is cooled to room temperature to prevent the sauce from quickly sinking.

After a few minutes, the mixture will turn to syrup and start to bubble. When the syrup starts to darken, gently swirl the pan until the syrup is even deep amber color. Make sure to swirl the pan and not stir.
