(Makes approximately 2 cups)

Cuisiniers’ Salted Caramel Sauce:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 1/2 tsp kosher or sea salt

In a large heavy metal pot or Dutch oven spread sugar in bottom of pot.  Place on medium heat and cook without stirring until the sugar around the edges starts to liquify.  Next, using a wooden spoon, gently stir the sugar.  As it begins to look like little pebbles, keep stirring until the amber color turns a deep brown.  Remember to not stop stirring!  Finally, remove the pot from the heat and carefully add in 1/2 of the cream.  Use caution as the sauce will bubble up dramatically.  Add in the remainder of the cream until the sauce is smooth.  Finally, stir in the butter and salt.  Serve warm over apple fritters, bread pudding, your favorite ice cream, a warm chocolate brownie, or a combination of the above!

Serve Immediately and Enjoy!
