Turtle Ice Cream Sauce Recipe

Making this rich caramel-fudge sauce is a family affair at our house—the kids love to unwrap the caramels! The sauce can be made ahead and frozen.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 15 min. + cooling YIELD:72 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter, cubed
  • 2 cans (12 ounces each) evaporated milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package (14 ounces) caramels
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, combine the first seven ingredients. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium-low heat until the caramels are melted and mixture is smooth (do not boil). Reduce heat to low.
  • 2. With an electric hand mixer on medium speed, beat in vanilla; continue beating for 5 minutes. Beat on high for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool for 30 minutes (sauce will thicken as it cools). Pour into glass or plastic food storage containers; refrigerate. Serve warm or cold. Yield: 9 cups.
