Yields: 7 servings (1/4 cup each)


A bit of evaporated milk makes this Chocolate Caramel Sauce an ice cream topping that is creamy and rich. Served warm over a big bowl of French vanilla, it's a connoisseur's delight! Then again, it can only improve a sundae with the works!


  • 1 3/4 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Milk Chocolate Morsels, divided
  • 10 caramels
  • 3/4 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, any flavor


COMBINE 1 1/2 cups morsels, caramels and evaporated milk in medium heavy-duty saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until morsels and caramels are melted and mixture is smooth. Serve warm over ice cream; sprinkle with remaining morsels.

NOTE: If any sauce is left over, cover and refrigerate; reheat in heavy saucepan over low heat.

Makes 1 3/4 cups.

This stuff is heavenly!! Made brownies, then topped with ice cream and this was better than restaurant quality. Will be making this again.

I love caramel and chocolate! This was wonderful over ice cream but next time I'm thinking of using some peanut butter chips also.

I prepared this sauce for my family. I served it over a cake that I had baked. My family enjoyed the hot caramel/chocolate sauce over the cake.

You've gotta try it

by G. , sheffield on Jul. 2003

There's no use in saying I don't wanna try it because that's what I was like but when you do it you will use it on anything it goes with because i did and not only that it's cheap to make too, when you buy all the ingredients, so what are you waiting for??
