Easy Salted Caramel Sauce


This salted caramel sauce is easy to make and only uses a few ingredients. No candy thermometer is needed. You can have this sauce ready in just a few minutes.

The best thing about this sauce is that you can use it on almost anything. Add it to coffee or hot chocolate, swirl it through ice cream, drizzle it over cakes or pies….the possibilities are endless.

This salted caramel sauce is so easy to make. However, there are some important points you need to know before you start making it:

Use a pan that is at least twice as big as the volume of the caramel you’re trying to make. If the pan is too small, it can bubble up and over the side of the pan while cooking.

Use a wooden spoon to stir the melted sugar. I find that a wooden spoon works best, since it doesn’t conduct heat (so it won’t get too hot to hold), and does not scratch the non-stick surface of your pan.

Be careful when adding butter and double cream to hot sugar syrup! It will bubble up like crazy, so make sure you stand back and use a long-handled whisk or wooden spoon.

The sauce will thicken as it cools down, so don’t worry if it looks like too runny when you take it off the heat.
