This is a simple and yummy sauce. Great for cakes with layers - just put a layer of this, then the filling, then the cake again and it's wonderful. It's also great on desserts and in coffee drinks!
2/3 cup packed dark-brown sugar
3 ounces (6 tablespoons) butter, cut into pieces
1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup heavy cream
Mix sugar, butter, corn syrup, and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat, and cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and whisk in cream. Return to heat, and cook for 2 minutes. Let cool slightly.
