This easy homemade salted caramel sauce is absolutely fantastic. And that’s coming from someone who typically doesn’t really like caramel.
Yeah, I’m crazy. I know. People inform me of that every time I say that I don’t really like caramel all that much.
I think it’s just too sweet for me. Although evidently those feelings go out the window when it comes to salted caramel sauce. I think the salt gets rid of some of the sweetness, so I can get on board with it in this form.
It’s still not chocolate – but it’s pretty tasty. Especially drizzled over apple slices. Or a bowl of vanilla ice cream.
Or, if you really want to get crazy, over these apple pie bars with vanilla ice cream – that’s just dessert heaven right there.
This salted caramel sauce is incredibly easy to make. It only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish, and you have a lovely jar of homemade sauce that beats anything you can get at the store. And it makes a perfect gift for the holidays, if you like gifting food!
If you’ve never made your own, you should definitely try this recipe. It convinced me that I like caramel – so it must be fantastic!
Tips for perfect Salted Caramel Sauce:
- I like these spatulas for making this sauce – they’re completely heat proof and are perfect for stirring the sugar as it melts so it doesn’t burn
- I like to store my sauce in a mason jar – you can keep it in the fridge for 2-3 weeks, or you can freeze it for up to 3 months
- reheat your sauce in the microwave on low power – I like to scoop some into a smaller bowl to reheat it as reheating it multiple times cause the texture to change a bit and it doesn’t melt as nicely
- here are a few recipes you can use your salted caramel sauce with (or in): Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark, Peanut Butter and Salted Caramel Brownies, and Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Frosting
