Homemade Caramel Coffee Creamer

creamer

I have a serious weakness for caramel flavored coffee. This version is most likely not cheaper than those available in the diary aisle, but it will be fresher and better tasting.

3 1/2 cups dairy (half and half, heavy cream, light cream, milk, or a combination of any of these)
1/3 cup sugar (white or brown)
1 cup of caramel pieces (or 3/4 cup caramel sauce)
1 tablespoon vanilla
container for creamer

Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan
heat until caramel is completely melted
allow to cool until warm
pour into container and refridgerate

#audreycancook Another #leftover creation, skillet #appletart, a #smallbatch #audreycancook Skillet chicken #enchiladas a #smallbatch.  A great recipe for clearing out the fridge. On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
