Quick and Easy Caramel Sauce
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (200 grams) dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick or 56 grams) butter
  • salt (a pinch for classic caramel sauce or ½ teaspoon for salted caramel)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, mix together the sugar, heavy whipping cream, butter and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the mixture simmer for about 2 minutes, whisking occasionally.
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat, add the vanilla extract (be careful, the mixture is hot) and stir. Let mixture cool in the pan for 2 minutes, then pour into a jar. Let cool to room temperature and refrigerate until ready to use (up to 5 days). Warm it up in the microwave before using.
