Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce
I’m obsessed with this homemade salted caramel sauce. I love that it’s quick and easy to make (as always!) and only requires a few ingredients that I typically have readily on hand!
As with most things, made-from-scratch caramel sauce is just so superior to most anything you could buy from the store. It has a deep, rich flavor and color and an amazingly thick and smooth texture. It’s great for drizzling on ice cream, over brownies and cakes, or even just for licking right off the spoon!
But if you’d like a few suggesting for using this seriously delicious recipe, here are some of my fave recipes that call for caramel sauce: No Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake, Pecan Praline Baked Brie, Quick and Easy Caramel Pie, Take 5 Candy Bar Rice Krispie Treats, and Pumpkin Caramel Toffee Bars. All full of yummy, caramel-y flavors that you will love!
A few notes:
I am providing two different measurements for the cream in this recipe. I use Cool Whip to make mine (simply because I tend to have it more readily on hand than heavy cream); but I’m also providing a measurement for heavy cream, because I know some of you are probably just the opposite and tend to have heavy cream more readily accessible. Either way you choose to go, the sauce will still turn out great.
Take care to store the sauce in a microwave-safe container. Hot sugar burns like crazy. Just something to keep in mind when it comes time to re-heat the sauce for leftover-use!
