The Gooiest, Creamiest Caramel Recipes You'll Ever Find

In a boring dessert rut? HuffPost Taste to the rescue!

Have you ever met someone who doesn't like caramel? We haven't. And if we have, we're blocking you out right now -- sorry. There isn't much to dislike about gooey, buttery, sweet caramel recipes. Just think of them as calorically abundant. Doesn't that sound better?

We love caramel desserts, but we were actually surprised to see just how many sweets caramel finds its way into. It might even be safe to say that you can put caramel on anything and improve it. (We'll test this theory and get back to you.) Included in the amazing recipes below are a few cheater's caramel tricks, plenty of from-scratch caramel recipes and pure, unadulterated caramel indulgence. Let's make dessert!
