Can I make caramel sauce and put in fridge till needed?

I am making a cheesecake for dessert tonight and there is a caramel sacue that goes on top-YUM! anyway I was wondering if I can make the sauce and store in fridge till needed?
If so do I need to reheat?

  1. Caramel sauce should keep fine in the fridge. Depending on the consistency when it's cool, you might need to warm it up before pouring over your cheesecake - you can warm it in a pan or the microwave.

      Just be careful when rewarming in the microwave to microwave on low power and stir often (ev. 30 seconds or so) -- you don't want hot spots to develop and crystallize in your caramel sauce.
