Oh my gosh – how in love with this sauce am I??? I could not stop licking the spoon, bowl, saucepan, you name it. I could have poured it into a glass and drank it!
It’s creamy and glossy and sweet and perfect for swirling in brownies or Salted Caramel Blondies (which I can’t wait to make). Both recipes come from the blog Add a Pinch. So glad I found it! I made enough for about 1 1/2 cups – just store in the fridge in an airtight container and use some whenever you are in the mood!
Salted Caramel Sauce
Yield: 1 1/2 cups
1 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter, cut into cubes
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 tablespoon sea salt
In a medium saucepan, add brown sugar and melt over medium-high heat until sugar begins to melt and clump together. Lower the heat to low, add butter, stir constantly until melted and sugar and butter are smooth.
Remove from heat and gently stir in cream and salt. Stir until caramel is smooth and glossy. Let cool slightly and store in an airtight container. Will keep in the pantry for a week or the fridge for up to a month.
