Classic Salted Caramel Sauce

This decadent salted caramel sauce is an amazing topper for ice cream, cakes, and so much more!

– Granulated sugar – Butter – Heavy cream – Good, flaky salt



Start with caution.  Caramel is hot sugar and the steam it produces can cause burns, so please do this step when you’re fully engaged.  I don’t want you to get burned!

Step 1

Step 2

Place granulated sugar in the bottom of a large (at least 2.5-qt), heavy-bottomed saucepan.  Turn heat to high medium and watch sugar carefully as it begins to melt.

Step 3

Once the sugar begins to melt, stir constantly with a balloon whisk like this one.  It’s important that the whisk not have a metal handle, since a metal handle will conduct heat from the pan.

Step 4

Keep stirring constantly until all of the lumps of sugar melt and the sugar has a slightly nutty smell.
