Whether you are looking for a thick caramel sauce for dipping or a thin sauce to cover an ice cream sundae, your favorite bag of caramel candies offers a quick and easy solution. With the addition of a little liquid and a bit of heat, those candies quickly turn into a tasty sauce. The amount of liquid you add to the candies determines the thickness of your sauce to suit your recipe or topping needs.
Unwrap each individual candy, as you try to avoid eating any -- and reducing the amount of sauce you'll have. Place the caramels into a saucepan and add a couple of tablespoons of water or milk. Add less liquid for a thicker sauce or more for a thin version. Milk or cream in place of water helps create a richer and creamier sauce. Cook the candies over low heat, stirring constantly, until they are melted and your sauce is the desired consistency.
