Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe

When it comes to topping ice cream or almost any other dessert, this homemade salted caramel sauce is the perfect choice because it is simple to prepare. 


– ¼ cup water (60 ml) – 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams) – ⅔ cup heavy whipping cream (160 ml) at room temperature – 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (45 grams) cut into tablespoon-sized piece – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon salt or to taste


Heat water and sugar in a heavy saucepan on medium. Use a larger saucepan than you think you'll need. Stir until the sugar dissolves and the mixture bubbles slightly.

Turn off the heat and slowly whisk in the heavy cream. Be careful—the mixture will bubble up. Add butter, vanilla, and salt one at a time.
