To make the salted caramel you don’t even need a candy thermometer! Just always keep your eye on it.
Here are the basic steps…
1- In a pot over medium heat melt the sugar while stirring often. The sugar will clump and that’s ok. Just keep going until it’s melted and smooth.
2- Once sugar is melted add butter. It will bubble up and start to look so yummy!
3- Add in heavy cream (slowly and carefully!) Let it boil for 1 minute. It will rise and get bubbly.
4- Remove from heat, add salt and let cool.
5- The best step! Eat however you’d like and enjoy!

- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 6 Tablespoons butter, cut into 6 pieces
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Heat granulated sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly with a high heat resistant rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
- Sugar will form clumps, as it starts to melt down switch to a whisk to help the sugar clumps break down. The sugar will all eventually melt into a thick brown, amber-colored liquid as you continue to whisk. Be careful not to burn.
- Once sugar is completely melted, immediately add the butter. Be careful in this step because the caramel will bubble rapidly when the butter is added.
- Stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely melted, about 2-3 minutes.
- Very slowly and CAREFULLY, drizzle in ½ cup of heavy cream while stirring. Since the heavy cream is colder than the caramel, the mixture will rapidly bubble and/or splatter when added.
- Boil for 1 minute. It will rise in the pan as it boils.
- Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon of salt. Allow to cool down before using or pouring into jars.
- Store in the fridge and warm up to use on desserts.
