Simple Homemade Caramel Sauce
A simple method for making your own caramel sauce—complete with a how-to video, so you can see how it's done!
1 cup Sugar
1 Butter Stick
½ cup Heavy Cream
½ tsp Sea Salt
½ tsp Kosher Salt
- 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.
- Continue cooking until sauce turns brown. At this point, carefully add heavy cream, whisking continuously.
- Remove from heat, and cool to room temperature. Once cooled, stir in a pinch of sea salt (or more, to taste).
