Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce – Take your dessert to a whole new level with a drizzle of this sauce! Easy to make and so delicious!
This Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce is kinda dangerous. Since I made it, I think I have put it on literally everything I’ve eaten! It’s that good! It’s actually the star of the Caramel Apple Mug Cake I made for lunch last weekend!
I was really amazed how well it turned out, it tasted even better than caramel sauce I have bought at the store! I knew I was going to make a ton of apple and pumpkin recipes the next few weeks and caramel is just perfect on any of those desserts! There is even a sneak peek below of my Pumpkin Spice Latte Mug Cake that I just had to share in this post because it really showed off the caramel so nicely! Make sure to check that post out later this week!
I think an amazing snack would be slices of an apple dipped in this sauce. It would be great to send for school lunches or as an after school snack! What’s not to love about caramel and apples together?!
Salted Caramel Sauce
- 2/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp salt
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring water and sugar to a boil, stirring constantly. Once it is boiling, bring heat up to high and stop stirring. Let boil until a nice amber color, about 6-10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and pour in heavy cream, butter, vanilla, and salt. Mix until well combined.
- Pour into a jar or dish to cool and store. Once the caramel sauce has cooled, it will thicken up. Store in refrigerator.
