Caramel Sauce Recipe + Free Fall Printables

Happy Fall Free Printable Gift Tag
I don’t know about you but I’m super excited to welcome fall, to celebrate I made these two fun fall printables for you to download for free. The above image is a gift tag, I printed it out and attached it to my favorite caramel sauce recipe to give to friends. You can’t beat my fresh made caramel sauce, just ask my husband. 😉 I also made a quote printable to hang in your home somewhere, after trolling pinterest for a good fall quote I settled upon “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you sow”  As soon as I read it I knew I needed this reminder in my home, raising kids is often challenging and draining and at the end of the day I wonder if I did any good, this little thought reminds me that although I may not see the fruits of my labor quite yet, if I’m planting good seeds they will bear fruit, eventually.

If you are in a gift giving mood this “happy fall” gift tag is perfect for anything, I decided to add it to a small jar of caramel sauce that is everyone’s favorite- recipe below. I made the tag in 3 different sizes for you to download- the medium size is pictured.

Caramel Sauce Recipe

by Handmade in the Heartland

  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. Combine the sugar, water, and the corn syrup in a large saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.Increase the heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil.
  2. Do not stir from this point on, but instead swirl the liquid around the pan so that the caramel doesn’t burn. Continue to cook until the caramel turns an even amber color then remove from the heat and let stand for about 30 seconds.
  3. Be careful here, Pour the heavy cream into the mixture. The mixture will bubble up significantly and is very hot.Stir the mixture with a spatula scraping the sides of the pot and combining all the ingredients, again be careful. Add the butter and stir until combined. As you stir you will see the caramel come to the consistency that you want and look like caramel! Let cool for a few minutes while you get the pie crust ready.
