This recipe is super easy to make as long as you don’t stray too far away. This is definitely a recipe that you need to keep your eye on because the caramel can burn pretty easily. The trick is too wait until it starts to get foamy looking and starts to turn a nice golden brown color. Once this happens, immediately take it off the stove top. Then add the butter and lemon juice. There you go, home-made caramel sauce. This recipe makes about 4 ounces and can easily be doubled or tripled depending on how much you need.

- 2 Tablespoons water
- 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
