Are you tired of the same old chocolate sauce on top of your ice cream sundae? Alicia Ross has a decadent caramel sauce that you can make at home with just a microwave and five minutes in this week's Kitchen Scoop.

Rich Caramel Sauce
Start to finish: 8 minutes

Directions:

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 cup heavy or whipping cream
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cut butter into 4 pieces, and place it in a 4-cup glass measure. Add brown sugar, cream, and corn syrup. Stir to mix. Microwave on high until mixture boils, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from microwave, uncover, and stir well. Stir in vanilla.

Let mixture cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.

The sauce can be refrigerated, covered, for up to 1 week. Reheat in the microwave, uncovered on high, until warmed through, about 1 minute.
