Stuff to know
Serve the caramel sauce with ice cream or fresh fruit.
Replace the double cream by sweetened condensed milk.
Add a tbspn of vanilla flavour or toasted and chopped hazelnuts.
Heating the cream decreases the temperature difference between the cream and caramel. Still, pour in the cream gradually since the caramel will mushroom up and is very hot and dangerous.
