Salted Caramel Sauce
This homemade salted caramel sauce is easy to make and cheaper than buying it at the store. It’s ready in less than 10 minutes!
Lately, I’ve been trying to make homemade versions of items I buy, like marshmallow fluff and now salted caramel sauce. I love drizzling salted caramel sauce on ice cream or over pies and other desserts. During a heavy recipe testing phase, I went through several store-bought jars in just a few days and I finally had enough. I didn’t want to spend so much money on salted caramel sauce.
So I made my own. And it was surprisingly easy.
Thick, sweet, and a little bit salty– just how I like my caramel sauce. I plan on making my own much more often. It’s great for gifting too!
- 1 cup light brown sugar packed
- 4 tbsp 1/2 stick salted butter
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp salt

Add all ingredients into a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat, bringing to a low boil. Whisk sauce while cooking at a low boil for about 7 minutes, until thickened. Serve right away or pour into a jar and seal tightly and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
