Easy Caramel Sauce Recipe
 
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup sucanat or rapadura *see note below (like this)
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup heavy cream (half n' half will work too)
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract (how to make your own vanilla)
  • pinch of sea salt
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, melt the butter and sugar over low heat. You're looking for the sugar to dissolve and the mixture to become smooth.
  2. Pour in the cream and whisk well to incorporate.
  3. Bring to a gentle simmer and continue to stir/cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the caramel sauce is nice and smooth.
  4. Remove from the heat and mix in the vanilla and salt.
  5. Serve warm or cold. It will thicken as it cools. If it becomes too thick, you can gently reheat it before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
