Caramel sauce question

TheSnowpea Dec 21, 2008 01:23 PM

This may be a blasphemous question, but I'm wondering if I can reduce the fat content in a salted caramel sauce by using evaporated milk instead of 35% heavy cooking cream.

Please don't hurt me -- but has anybody tried this?

    Using evaporated milk in a caramel sauce is a long time standard.

      Yup, the recipe will work fine.

        Will you post the recipe? I've been wanting to make a less horrifyingly caloric caramel sauce!
