1 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 cup butter

1-1/3 cups packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons water

12 small ice cream cones

For topping, in a large skillet melt butter; whisk in brown sugar and water until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth.

To serve, scoop ice cream into bowls. Invert an ice cream cone on top of ice cream scoop. Top with sauce and sprinkle with caramel corn. Makes about 1-1/2 quarts (twelve 1/2-cup servings with 2 tablespoons sauce).
