a little bit of milk would be ok

I thought about that or cream or even hot water.Has anyone done this! T

I think milk would be the best, because it won't interruptthe taste in any way.or cream

before you thin it heat it slowly it may be runny enough once warm.

I'd do a 'practise' run first. Can't imagine how it could be thinned. Good luck.

litedelites, is your caramel condensed milk the bought already caramelised type or home caramelised.I haven't used either for a while now but I do recall that the bought variety does (or used to) advise on the can label to not stir for it to be firm and to stir for it to be thinner/pouring consistency.If you have home-caramelised the condensed milk I, like others above, would suggest either cream or milk in preference to water, although I agree with margyr, that if serving the sauce warm, gently heat the caramelised milk before you add anything to it.

Another thought - is the caramel sauce being served to children as well as adults!I'm recalling the recipe for Fried Icecream that is served with a caramel sauce and that sauce has orange liqueur added to it - a nice combo.Maybe if there are children, you might like to have adults' sauce with added liqueur, and children's sauce either as is or with added orange juice.:-))
