Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe

Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe – The taste of homemade caramel sauce is so much more intense. Buttery, sweet, and uh, so caramelly with a subtle hint of sea salt (which you could totally leave out if you’re not a fan). I can’t say enough good things about this. It’s fantastic and I would love for you to make it – just so I’m not the only one eating this by the spoonfuls 😀


1 cup granulated sugar
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup heavy cream


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat sugar over medium-high heat, stirring constantly (using either a wire whisk or a wooden spoon). Continue to stir until sugar is completely dissolved and no lumps remain. Melted sugar should be a golden brown color.
  2. Add butter to the sugar and place a thermometer into the hot mixture. Butter should be completely melted and mixture should reach 350 degrees F. Immediately remove from the stove and sprinkle in sea salt. Give it a good stir and slowly whisk in heavy cream. Continue stirring until heavy cream is fully incorporated and smooth. Enjoy!


Salted Caramel Sauce will keep up to two months if stored in an airtight container in your fridge. This recipe yields slightly more than 1 cup and can easily be doubled.
