Caramel Syrup

Sometimes I get tired of serving "plain ol' maple syrup" with our morning waffles or pancakes...its fun to try something a little different and surprise everyone as they come staggering into the breakfast table. I made this fabulous Caramel Syrup that was so scrumptious...and to top it off I put a "dollop" of whipped topping right in the center of the waffle... I am sure we "needed" those extra calories. That little dollop of cream made it taste just that much better. This is a must try...and today is the perfect day to try it out!

Caramel Syrup

1 cube butter (use the REAL stuff...it will taste so much better)
1 c. brown sugar
2 t. corn syrup

Combine all ingredient in a small saucepan. Bring to a slow boil. Cook and stir continually for 2 minutes. DO NOT over cook or you'll end up with a "taffy" textured syrup because it will boil and turn into "candy"(yes, I've been there, done that). Serve on pancakes, french toast, waffles, german pancakes...anything that you would top with maple syrup.
