Quick Caramel Sauce

Want a caramel apple quick? Sometime I do and this is the perfect recipe for a quick caramel sauce. Delicious as a dip for apples, pears or any kind of fruit. Also a yummy topping on ice cream. Or just eat it by the spoonful--any way it is delicious.
I always have the ingredients to whip up a quick batch and who doesn't have a few apples hanging out in their fridge. It is perfect. I don't know where the recipe came from, I have been making it for years and can't believe it has taken me almost 500 posts to get it on my blog!

Quick Caramel Sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup light Karo
1/4 cup cream
2 tablespoons butter
Combine in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn heat down to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Caramel will thicken as it cools.

This is so similar to a recipe that I've made for years, that was in a cookbook my mom got when she was married. Now I'm thinking I should post it too!
