    It is a little thin. Don't add milk to make it thicker. If you do, it doesn't turn out right. Just use less water. Like, a 1/2 cup of water or so. I found that works best.

    Check the directions in the cookbook--they indicate that you begin with JUST THE SUGAR IN THE PAN--then add 1 CUP OF BOILING WATER LATER

    After you remove the liquid from the heat, I think if you add a half cup of milk with a half cup of water instead of the water alone, you will get a somewhat thicker caramel sauce. But it still won't be heavy like a regular caramel sauce.

    Is this syrup supposed to be thin? When I added and stirred in the water after creating the golden amber mixture, the result is almost water thin. Beautiful, but not very syrupy.
