Instructions
  1. In a deep glass bowl with high sides, melt the butter in the microwave. Whisk in the light brown sugar. Then slowly whisk in the milk until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Microwave for 2 minutes then stir. Return to microwave for another 2 minutes. Mixture should be bubbling and slightly thickened. Watch closely as microwave times will vary depending upon the power of your machine.
  3. Remove from microwave and stir in vanilla. Mixture will thicken more as it cools.
Recipe Notes

This is not a very thick caramel sauce. If you want a thicker caramel, use 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream in place of the milk.
