Just four ingredients, ten minutes, and no thermometer needed. This luscious but also ridiculously easy homemade salted caramel sauce is perfect for topping ice cream, pies, brownies, cookies, cheesecakes, and pretty much whatever else you can think of!
There is just something about a sweet & salty combination that drives tastebuds crazy – pretzels & chocolate, maple & bacon, milkshakes & fries, even peanut butter & jelly. But I submit that nothing tops salted caramel. It’s amazing stuff.
1 cup Brown sugar; Packed
1/2 cup Heavy cream
4 tablespoons Butter
1 pinch Sea salt
1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
Melt butter in pot, mix in brown sugar, cream and salt. Whisk over medium-low heat for 7 minutes (or more if you doubled the recipe). Remove the pot from the heat, add vanilla and return to cook for another minute or more to thicken. Remove from stove, pour into a jar and store in refrigerator.
