Homemade salted caramel sauce

Homemade salted caramel sauce

I am not a big fan of too much sugary desserts.

I cannot say I didn’t love cake or ice-cream, I should be a liar, but I cannot eat thing too sugary.

An example? Caramel cake!

My boyfriend loves them so much… but I don’t!!

Or better I didn’t like them until I discovered the salted caramel sauce…

Love at first… taste!! 😀

I don’t know, maybe it was the salted butter, which I adore, or that little bit of salt which mitigate the sugary taste, the point is salted caramel sauce is become one of my best friend…

And now… I can make it by myself!! 😀

It’s easy to make, you only have to pay attention to not burn the caramel.

Drizzle it over ice-cream or muffins, put inside a crêpe or use as a dip for fruit… you can use it for whatever you like 😀

And what do you think about it as a Christmas present?

I think it would be great! 😉



Homemade salted caramel sauce



100g dark brown sugar

150ml heavy cream/double cream/whipping cream*

50g salted butter**







Place the sugar in a saucepan and cook it on a medium-low heat.

Stirring constantly and, once it is completely melted, remove from the heat.

Heat the cream a little bit and add it to the caramel.

Pay attention!!! The mixture will bubble rapidly, don’t hurt you!

Add the butter cut into pieces and mix with a manual whisk.

Cook again on a medium-low heat and let the sauce thicken.

Pour into a hermetic glass jar.

The homemade salted caramel sauce is ready!

You can pack it and use it as a present, or you can store it on your fridge and use it whenever you want… everything would be tastier!! 😉


Bon Appétit!!

*All of them are good, the important thing is that the cream must be 30% or more milk fat.

** I you cannot find salted butter, never mind, you can easily use unsalted butter and add a bit of salt to the mixture.
