Easy Creamy Caramel Sauce
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup evaporated milk plus more as needed depending on desired consistency
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Add butter, brown sugar, water, and salt to medium saucepan and heat over medium-low heat, stirring until butter melts.
Bring to a boil then reduce to a vigorous simmer, whisking constantly until thickened, approximately 5-7 minutes. Keep in mind, the caramel sauce will thickens more as it cools. (If the caramel sauce still looks thin after you remove it from the heat, then return to a simmer.) Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup evaporated milk (it will bubble a lot) and vanilla. Add additional evaporated milk to reach desired consistency.
