Prepare the caramel sauce: In one medium saucepan, melt the unsalted butter and add the thickened cream, caster sugar, and condensed milk. Stir continuously until all the ingredients combine, being mindful of the sauce catching on the bottom. Simmer for 30 minutes, when the sauce should begin to thicken. Continue stirring until the sauce carmelises.
