Caramel Sauce

Who doesn’t love a good caramel sauce? This is a simple caramel sauce that doesn’t take long to make but will taste amazing. It is so much better than that stuff that comes out of a bottle. Anything to do with caramel is favored in my house. So this sauce may have been eaten with a spoon out of a bowl by more than one individual.

Caramel Sauce


1 cup sugar

6 tablespoons cold salted butter, cubed

1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup heavy cream


In a medium saucepan, heat sugar over medium-high until melted and brown at edges, 3 minutes. With a heat-resistant spatula, pull melted sugar toward center until all sugar is melted and caramel is deep amber in color, 3 minutes more.

Immediately whisk in butter, coarse salt, and pure vanilla extract (take care as mixture is extremely hot and will bubble).

Whisk in  heavy cream.

Pour into a heatproof container and let cool.
