Salted Caramel Sauce

Since childhood, I’ve disliked caramel or anything caramel except for Twix.

Yeah, okay, I love sweets… but I did not reach the point of loving caramel… not until salted caramel was born.

I love the combination of salty and sweet and that’s when I started getting crazy over salted caramel sauce. It is just too good that I can almost drink it! ๐Ÿ˜›

Salted Caramel Sauce - TNSCC

Making caramel sauce is a little tricky for the impatient side of me. You know, you’ll just stand in front of the stove and keep stirring and stirring. And gosh, I was using a stainless steel pot and the handle was too hot! I was using thick gloves, but that handle was really something.

The good thing about this sauce, you don’t need a candy thermometer to make this. You’ll have to carefully watch the color of the caramel and be patient. ๐Ÿ˜€

Salted Caramel Sauce

  • Servings: 1 cup
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 90g salted butter, cut into 6-pc cubes
  • 1/2 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. In a heavy medium saucepan over medium heat, add white sugar. Stir constantly using a wooden spoon. (The sugar will form clumps and melt into thick liquid (amber in color) as you stir. Please be careful not to burn it.)
  2. Once the sugar is completely melted, add the butter. (The caramel will bubble when butter is added.) Stir until butter is melted.
  3. While stirring, slowly add the heavy/whipping cream. (The mixture will bubble when the cream is added.)
  4. Let the mixture boil for a minute.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat and add in 1 tsp of salt. Allow to cool before using.


  • This can be made ahead of time and can be stored in the fridge for two weeks.
  • Only use heavy or whipping cream.
  • If desired to make more than this recipe, it is preferred to make them in batches. Do not double or triple this recipe and make them one time.
  • Make sure your saucepan is thick and with a handle. It is better to work on the sauce.

I love this caramel sauce a lot. I would’ve drink the whole glass if I didn’t make this for another recipe.

I am sharing this with my friends at Fiesta Friday #103, co-hosted by the lovely Angie, with this week’s fabulous co-hosts, Sonal and Petra.

Have a fantastic weekend! Wishing you a day full of smiles! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
