Who doesn’t love a bit of caramel? I’m a real fiend for salted caramel sauce and today I want to share with you how you can make it in under 10 minutes! It keeps for days and days in the fridge too, if yours lasts that long!
Pop this in a squeezy sauce bottle, they’re super cheap, and then you can just drizzle it over the top of your desserts, cookies, bakes or just about anything you fancy!
Ingredients for salted caramel sauce:
175g brown sugar
300ml double cream
1/2 tsp of salt (Sea salt works SO well for this!)
Method for this delicious caramel sauce:
Weigh out your ingredients then combine in a saucepan.
Cook on a very low heat, stirring frequently until the ingredients have melted together.
Turn to heat up to medium and leave it for a few minutes to bubble up slightly, but NOT to boil over or you’ll be left with a HUGE sticky mess!
This should take around 2-3 minutes.
Cool it for 5-10 minutes first so you don’t burn the skin off the top of your mouth and then you’ll have a glorious thick, golden sauce that is ideal for pouring into a squeezy bottle for convenient serving.
This is absolutely delicious served over my 3 ingredient mug cake. Two super fast and simple desserts that take just minutes to prepare and go so well together!
If you want to give it a little more effort then I love this salted caramel sauce with a chocolate ripple cheesecake:

I like to make this in advance, cool it and then I leave it in the fridge until we want to use it. This is ideal for re-heating on the hob or even in the microwave. Sometimes I use this salted caramel sauce in recipes and it goes great on the top of Christmas pudding, brownies, ice cream and much more.
It is salty, without being overpowering, and it has a lovely glossy sheen to it. I love to put my salted caramel sauce in a plastic squeezy bottle once it has cooled. This is ideal for easy distribution or even applying just a few blobs on a piece of cake or one of my Christmas cookies.

Weigh out all of your ingredients and throw them all in a saucepan. Better yet weigh it in the saucepan to save on the washing up!

Turn the heat up to medium-high and then leave it for a few minutes to bubble up, but not boil over. This should only take about 2-3 minutes and you’ll be left with a thick golden syrupy sauce.
When this has finished just turn it off the heat and leave it to cool for 5-10 minutes before you serve it.
