Caramel Sauce?

Does anyone have a recipe for LC caramel sauce. I know that Steel's makes one but I haven't tried it, was not real impressed with the Steel's strawberry jam and hesitate to spend more money. I thought about ordering the Davinci's caramel or dulce de luche flavors and trying to thicken it with xanthum gum.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Josie has a good recipe for LC Caramel Sauce

Rich Caramel Sauce

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup whipping cream
3 tablespoons DiabetiSweet
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 ounces cream cheese - softened

Melt butter over medium heat.
Add DiabetiSweet and dissolve.
Add cream and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Boil approximately 6 minutes, or until sauce thickens and starts to turn a light caramel color. Stir constantly.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and softened cream cheese.
Makes 1 cup. Stores in refrigerator well. Reheat as needed.

I've tried Steel's caramel and chocolate sauces - didn't like either of them! I'm a Somersizer and I've ordered Suzanne's caramel and chocolate sauces - they are fanTAStic!

but - they're just way to expensive, so I won't be ordering them again...but they are the best I've tasted. *Ü*

The caramel sauce is great on ice cream and cheesecake. It goes very well with this chocolate sauce recipe too. If you have one recipe, you really need the other....they need each other. As usual, this is much much cheaper to make homemade.

Dark Chocolate Fudge Sauce

1 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate or 1 tablespoon cocoa
1/4 cup cream
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons DiabetiSweet
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In saucepan, melt butter and chocolate squares on low heat.
Add DiabetiSweet and dissolve.
Add cream and bring to boil for 1 minute stirring constantly.
Add vanilla and mix well.
Mixture will slightly thicken as it cools.

2 servings
Best if eaten warm... poured over cold ice cream.
Also wonderful drizzled over cheesecake.
Reheats well.

Josie

for the caramel sauce, can you use something other than the DiabetiSweet? I want to try this, but I don't have any of that. I have splenda and erythritol. will either of these work with good results?

thanks

Im wondering too about replacing the sweetener. Is it the same ratio as Splenda or Maltitol? I have tried (and LOVE) the chocolate sauce recipe using a Splenda/Maltitol mix, but I would think it might not be sweet enough for a caramel sauce? Any advice would be appreciated

I did use the erythritol mixed with splenda, but it still had crystals in it. The taste was pretty good, it was just crunchy. I used 3 TBs of the erythritol and a tsp of splenda

SSin-Deb, Do the Suzanne's sauces have more carbs than our homemade ones, if you can tell from the ingredients? Thanks

Thanks. I thought there was real sugar in her substitute, but the carb count is still low.
