  • Thanks, Kim! I know these have a million different names (hello dollies, I think, were one) but the basic idea is pretty well known. I'm so glad they reminded you of your mom, it's funny how food does that 🙂

  • These look so good. Reminds me of the "ranger bars" my mom would make as a kid. I had no idea what was in them.. but I loved them! Thanks for sharing at You're Gonna Love it! Pinning!

    Thanks, Sounds great!

  • Yes! It's simple, but you have to be a little bit careful with it.

    1. Get a large pot, so you reduce the chance of the sauce bubbling over. Boil 1 cup of sugar with 1/4 cup of water on medium heat and whisk until smooth. 
    2. Let the mixture boil until it turns a pale amber color, then watch it carefully because it can burn quickly at this point.
    3. Right when it becomes a caramel color, reduce to low heat and slowly add 1/2 cup of heavy cream. It will bubble up a lot which is why you need a big pot.
    4. Whisk until smooth, mix in 1.5 teaspoons of salt, and carefully transfer the sauce into a heat proof container. Let it cool completely before using.
