6-Minute Small Batch Salted Caramel Sauce
I love making this quick and easy salted caramel sauce to go with a variety of recipes that I have. It’s pretty tasty on different pies, crumbles, Apples or Pears, and on ice cream! You can just whip up a quick, small batch to use right away, or store it in mason jars for later. It’s pretty easy to double, triple, quadruple, etc. when you need a larger amount for a crowd.
To begin, gather all of your ingredients, and measure them out, to ensure you have everything you need, before you get started.
In a small sauce pan, over medium high heat, whisk together your butter, brown sugar, heavy cream, and salt. Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat. Allow it to simmer for about 5 minutes, but be sure to whisk frequently. Whisk in the vanilla, and then remove from heat.
Pour caramel sauce into heatproof jar and allow it to cool.
Note: This sauce will burn easily if not consistently whisked. Do not leave unattended while cooking. The sauce will thicken as it cools. It is perfect for dipping apples, pouring over warm apple desserts, ice cream, or using in various fall recipes that call for caramel.
