Welcome to the age of everything old is new again in 1930 Eagle Brand released this simple to follow the recipe to make a delicious Mock Caramel Sauce.  You will find the Crock-pot version all over the net.

    Are you kidding me? This is 100% caramel goodness (at least in flavor!) I LOVE this stuff…I have only done this to make Bannoffee Pie, but why do I do that? Great idea to do it as a caramel sauce…yummy over ice cream and desserts, or straight from the can with a spoon! haha!
