  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Place the sugar in a heavy sauce pan and cook on medium-high heat stirring until the sugar has melted and turned an amber color.
  • Stir in the butter, one tablespoon at a time, while whisking vigorously until fully combined. (The mixture will bubble up fiercely so make sure to keep your face away from the pot while adding the butter.)
  • Remove from the heat and then add the heavy cream while whisking constantly until smooth. Add salt and whisk to incorporate.
  • Let the caramel cool and then store in a glass container with a lid.


  • Let the caramel cool and then store in a glass container with a lid. Store in fridge for up to 1 month.
  • Be very careful, the melted sugar is very hot. 
  • Use a deep saucepan so that the sugar does not spill over the sides when adding the butter and cream.
