6-Minute Small Batch Salted Caramel Sauce

Fall is one of my favorite times of year – and the food that comes with it. We always attend the local Apple Festivals, and my favorite thing to eat with those juicy apples is some delicious salted caramel sauce. Wayy better than that stuff you pick up in the store – and also super easy. 6-minutes and you have yourself a delicious snack!

Yields: 8 oz jar of Salted Caramel Sauce

Prep Time: 1 minute| Cook Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 6 minutes




2 tablespoons salted butter

½ cup light brown sugar, packed

¼ cup heavy cream

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon vanilla




In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together butter, brown sugar, heavy cream, and salt.



Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer for 5 minutes – whisking frequently.

Whisk in vanilla, and then remove from heat.

Pour caramel sauce into heatproof jar and allow it to cool.

Notes: This sauce will burn easily if not consistently whisked. Do not leave unattended while cooking. The sauce will thicken as it cools. It is perfect for dipping apples, pouring over warm apple desserts, ice cream, or using in various fall recipes that call for caramel.
