Caramel Sauce

15 mins


What you are creating

Caramel sauce is a delicious topping that can be used in a variety of ways. It's perfect for topping ice cream sundaes, adding sweetness to fruit salads, drizzling over cakes, and creating a decadent topping for pancakes or waffles.


  1. In a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat, combine the sugar with ¼ cup cold water and stir to combine. Cook, without stirring, until the sugar has turned a deep amber hue, approximately 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, warm the cream in a small saucepan. When the caramel is ready, slowly whisk in the warm cream and continue simmering the mixture until it is smooth, another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, then whisk in the butter, vanilla bean paste and then the salt, to taste. Serve warm.

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup cold water

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste

  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
