Caramel Fondue

So every year there is a father and sons campout in our ward. Me and few friends always get together and do a fondue party and stay up late chatting. Normally we do a chocolate fondue and cheese. But this year my friend Michelle had a baby, adorable Brigham does NOT like chocolate! So I decided to do a caramel fondue for her and it was yummy!

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 stick butter, room temperature and cut into pieces
2 tsp vanilla

In a sauce pot combine, water, syrup and sugar. Over low heat cook for about ten minutes till the sugar is completely dissolved. Increase heat to moderate and cook till syrup begins to turn a golden brown. Swirl the pan or brush down the sides with a pastry brush with water. Continue to cook till the syrup is a deep amber color. Remove from heat and add butter and heavy cream. Return to heat and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Allow to cool for 30 minutes. Serve warm or cold with fresh fruit, angel food cake or our personal favorite scones. Supper yummy!
