Salted butter caramel

Written by admin


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (adjust to taste)


  1. Begin by heating the granulated sugar in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon until the sugar melts and turns into a rich amber color.
  2. Carefully pour the heavy cream into the caramelized sugar while stirring constantly. Be cautious as the mixture will bubble up.
  3. Once the cream is fully incorporated, add the unsalted butter and continue to stir until it melts and the mixture becomes smooth and glossy.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the sea salt. Adjust the amount of salt to your taste preference.
  5. Allow the caramel to cool down before transferring it to a glass jar or an airtight container.
  6. You can use this salted butter caramel as a topping for ice cream, drizzle it over desserts, or use it as a dip for fruits.
  7. Enjoy your homemade salted butter caramel! It’s a sweet and salty delight that can elevate a wide range of treats.

Feel free to adjust the sea salt to your liking, as some prefer a more intense salted flavor while others enjoy it milder.
