It’s officially salted caramel season and by caramel season, I mean the time of year where it’s acceptable to eat caramel sauce by the spoonful. We’re celebrating with the best salted caramel desserts!
How to Make Salted Caramel Sauce
All you need are 5 ingredients (sugar, unsalted butter, heavy cream, vanilla, and salt) and about 10 minutes to make a jar of homemade salted caramel sauce.
Start by melting and caramelizing granulated sugar in a large heavy saucepan. Once the sugar is completely melted, whisk in unsalted butter until completely incorporated, then drizzle in heavy cream while whisking constantly.
After letting the mixture boil for 1 minute, remove the caramel from the heat, pour into a glass bowl, and stir in vanilla and salt. From there, you’re ready to enjoy sweet and creamy caramel straight from the jar… it’s even better in dessert.
And now, the best salted caramel desserts!
