Salted Caramel SauceLuscious Salted Caramel Sauce will tantalize your taste buds and leave you craving for more! A drizzle of this irresistible liquid will jazz up your cookies, hot chocolate, ice cream and may be, even your life! And I can eat it by the spoonfuls. Nothing else needed! The salt perfectly balances out the sweetness and kicks up the flavor a few notches!
Ingredients: (Yield - about a cup)
- 1 Cup of granulated sugar
- 1/2 Cup of heavy whipping cream
- 6 tbsp of butter (salted or unsalted), cut into pieces
- 1 tsp of salt (if using salted butter) or 2 tsp salt (if using unsalted butter)
Take the sugar in a heavy bottomed saucepan and heat it on medium low heat, while stirring continuously till the sugar melts. Add the knobs of butter to the melted sugar. There will be a lot of spluttering and bubbling action going on, so be careful. Once the butter has melted completely slowly pour in the heavy cream, while stirring. Once again the concoction will bubble and splatter vigorously, so do be careful. Bring it to a boil and take it off the heat. Let it cool down completely before you use it.
I stored my salted caramel sauce in cute little canning jars and stuck it in the fridge and it stayed good for almost 13 days and then it got over. I had forgotten to put one jar away in the fridge for over a day and a half after I was done photos and it was still good - but don't try that at home. I am sure the cooler temperatures helped.
