A rainy weekend at the trailer, and with the change in the weather, I’m thinking comfort food and something sweet!

I think homemade anything is the best – and this Easy Salted Caramel Sauce recipe is the best by far!  And so easy to make too!

What goes well with Salted Caramel?

Well, we use it on coffee cake, pancakes and now my newest recipe – Blueberry Pear & Walnut Galette. You can even make salted caramel candy!

Now this salted caramel recipe uses heavy cream, the kind that has at least 35% milk fat.

I’ve been asked “can you make salted caramel sauce without cream?”

Yes, you can!  Just substitute evaporated milk one for one if you wish.

This time I wanted to make something just a bit different, so I experimented with different flavors.  The result is this thick caramel sauce recipe and the secret sauce is almond-flavored liqueur.

I used Amaretto Di Saronno, but I’m sure there are others.  This salted caramel sauce recipe makes about a pint – and can be doubled to make more, which is what I will do the next time I make a batch.

I think these little jars of salted caramel sauce would make perfect gifts at Christmas time and for hostess gifts.  I’ll use these cute little mason jars, like the ones shown here with twine ties around them.  What do you think? You can click the link to get them for yourself!

 

Here is the Easy Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe, just for you.

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar – well packed
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Amaretto (almond flavoured liqueur)

 

(Prep time – about 30 minutes):

  • In a medium sized saucepan mix the brown sugar, butter, sea salt, and heavy cream and cook over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring often, but not vigorously.
  • As the caramel begins to thicken, cook for another 2 minutes
  • Remove from heat and add the liqueur
  • Return to the stove and cook for another 2 minutes
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes
  • Pour into glass jars for storage
  • Tip: I poured the sauce into a 2 cup measuring cup and used that to pour into my little jars.
  • Enjoy!
