Honey Caramel Sauce

For some reason I’ve been on an ice cream kick lately, although 110 degree desert summer may have something to do with that.  I’ve also been working on using up a giant container of honey I had around as I have read about the health benefits of honey over sugar.  Every year I make and can hot fudge and caramel sauce for holiday gifts, sometimes over 100 jars at a time.  My friends and family start checking with me about this time of year to make sure I’m “doing it this year” so I thought I’d try something a little different this time.  This is an extremely simple recipe that turned out exceptional.  It still tastes mostly like honey, but is thicker with a little of the caramel flavor.  I think next time I might try to see if I can get it a little darker caramel.  For a more traditional Hot Fudge Sauce see here
