Simple Homemade Caramel Sauce

Simple Homemade Caramel Sauce

A simple method for making your own caramel sauce.


Ingredients (5)

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 Butter Stick (optional)
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt
  • or ½ tsp Kosher Salt
Add to list


  1. In a medium saucepan, dissolve sugar and water over medium heat. Once dissolved, stir in butter (if using). Allow to come to a boil. As your sauce simmers, run a wet brush around the inner edges of the pan to avoid a buildup of burnt caramel.
  2. Continue cooking until sauce turns brown. At this point, carefully add heavy cream, whisking continuously.
  3. Remove from heat, and cool to room temperature. Once cooled, stir in a pinch of sea salt (or more, to taste).
