This caramel topping is so amazing that I make more knowing that I'll be eating most of it before even pouring it over the dessert I've made.

Caramel is such a quick fix to add superb flavor and depth to just about any sweet dessert recipe, but it truly shines when added to this simple, straightforward classic Italian dessert dish.

While it's definitely a simple topping recipe to follow, needing just minutes to complete, it does require your undivided attention because as a person who has burnt my fair share of sugar and water, there's a microscopically fine line between done and burnt when it comes to caramel.

With just a few short steps, your Italian dairy-focused dessert can go from simply delicious to layered flavor heaven - check it out with your family and loved ones to see which version of these classic Tuscan dessert recipes they prefer.

Looking for more places to pair this classic Caramel sauce?  We recommend drizzling it on top of a lovely Cream Gelato, a simple Greek Yogurt and Pear Trifle, or an extra-sweet touch to your Vin Santo Panna Cotta with Almond Praline.
