Pumpkin Caramel Sauce for Sauce It Up #SundaySupper

We are doing sauces for this #SundaySupper. I immediately went for a savory sauce, like a really good red wine reduction or a pasta sauce but then I thought of fall and the flavors of fall and my mind went to pumpkin!! Pumpkin ideas rattled around in my brain and then I came up with a decadent hot pumpkin caramel sauce. One that would be great with a really good ice cream or maybe even a spiced cake or loaf.

I went back to my favorite caramel sauce that is already dark and rich and added the pumpkin and fall aromatic spices. It turned out amazing!! Pumpkin Caramel Sauce (Small)

What a quick and delicious sauce that screams fall, it is like eating liquid pumpkin pie!! Oh my heavens, is this good!!!
