Discover this delicious go-to caramel sauce, perfect for ice cream and pies!
Prep Time: 0 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Yields: 1 cup
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 stick butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
pinch of sea salt
In a medium saucepan, dissolve sugar and water over medium heat. Once dissolved, stir in butter (if using). Allow to come to a boil. As your sauce simmers, run a wet brush around the inner edges of the pan to avoid a buildup of burnt caramel.
Continue cooking until sauce turns brown. At this point, carefully add heavy cream, whisking continuously.
Remove from heat, and cool to room temperature. Once cooled, stir in a pinch of sea salt (or more, to taste).
