Simple celebrations: St. Teresa of Avila

 Little homemade Caramel Lattes for the kids...
A bigger mug for mama...
 Caramel sauce with apple slices for the kiddos... easy peasy!
Actually, I did make it, but it was terrible. Really awful!
Sean came home with a fever anyway, so he had no interest in apple crisp!
Note to self: never, ever, ever try a recipe that has no reviews.

Homemade Caramel Sauce
1/4 C. butter
1C. brown sugar 
(I used dark brown sugar and mine ended up tasting a little like toffee)
1/2 C. heavy cream
pinch of salt
Melt in a saucepan over medium low heat. 
Cook until thick, about 7 minutes.
Add a teaspoon of vanilla and cook a minute longer.

Caramel Lattes
1 Tbl. brown sugar
1/4 C. half and half
1 Tbl. caramel sauce 
(I used homemade but you can use caramel ice cream topping.)
1 C. hot brewed coffee
Stir brown sugar into half and half until dissolved. 
Whip with a milk frother or a small whisk. Pour coffee in a mug and stir in caramel sauce 
until dissolved. Pour frothed half and half into coffee. Serve.
