Caramel sauce question

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?

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

    1. Yup, the recipe will work fine.

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