Salted Caramel Sauce

Pin It

I was never a huge fan of caramel until salted caramel became all the rage.
It is definitely the cool caramel on the block.
There's just something about the sweet and salty combo that is so hard to resist!

This yummy sauce is so versatile.  Use it to swirl into brownie mix, add it to buttercream to make salted caramel frosting, dip apples into it or drizzle it over your favorite sweet treat.
It makes everything better!

There are lots of salted caramel recipes out there, but this one is so easy and I usually have all of the ingredients on hand.  If you want a glaze-like sauce, let it cool at room temp.  If you want a thick, fudgy sauce... pop it into the fridge to chill.

Salted Caramel Sauce
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp sea salt

Melt butter in saucepan.  Add sugars and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. 
Stir in whipping cream and bring back to a boil.  Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. 
Remove from heat and stir in salt.  Cool completely.
Keep refrigerated for up to two weeks, but I doubt it will last that long :)
Recipe makes about one cup.
