Homemade Creamy Caramel Sauce Recipe


Caramel sauce has always been a favorite for me, how else would anyone eat apples? I especially love the taste and smell come Fall when all the leaves are changing colors and apple picking becomes a pastime treat.

With this awesome recipe I found on sallysbakingaddiction.com I can now serve up warm gooey goodness anytime of the year– so simple, too!


  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons (90g) salted butter, cut up into 6 pieces
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat granulated sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly wooden spoon.
  2. Sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a thick brown, amber-colored liquid.
  3. Once sugar is completely melted, add the butter -caramel will bubble rapidly when the butter is added, so be careful not to burn yourself.
  4. Stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely melted, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Slowly, drizzle 1/2 cup of heavy cream while stirring.
  6. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute.
  7. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon of salt. Allow to cool down before using.

You can make this caramel sauce in advance and package it for teachers or friends as a gift. This year I will be sending it off with my kids for the first day of school as a little surprise.  Store it for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
