Yields: 1 cup
A super simple, thick, yet smooth, sweet topping that tastes amazing with apples, ice cream or many of your favorite fall desserts.
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup heavy cream, room temperature
  1. Place an even layer of the sugar in the bottom of a sauce pan. Heat the sugar over medium-high heat, whisking only when it begins to melt. As the sugar begins to melt it will clump up before it completely melts.
  2. Continue to cook the melted sugar until it turns a deep amber color. At this point carefully add the butter and whisk until the butter is melted.
  3. Remove from heat and slowly add the cream, whisking until it is smooth and the cream is completely mixed in.
  4. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
For Salted Caramel: add 1-2 teaspoons of sea salt to the sauce.
Refrigerate: up to 4 weeks
Freeze: up to 3 months
