Salted Caramel Sauce

This quick Caramel Sauce recipe is so easy and so delicious. You can put it on so many things!

1 cup sugar

¼ cup water

½ cup heavy cream

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon salt

In a small heavy-bottom pan, add the sugar and water and mix together. Place on medium high heat and cook to a medium amber caramel, occasionally brushing the sides of the pan with a clean brush and water. This will prevent sugar crystals from falling in and crystallizing your sauce.


Remove from heat and gently pour in the heavy cream. Be careful when pouring as the hot caramel might spatter a bit. Return to the stove on low heat and mix until nicely combined.


Remove from heat and whisk in the butter and salt. Enjoy right away, or refrigerate and rewarm for serving later.
