Salted Caramel Sauce

I made a Pear Crisp the other day….first time ever. I wanted something kinda salty to add to it so I thought I’d throw this together and drizzle it on top. Quite honestly, they both were really tasty…but I thought there was too much sweet on one dessert (I know…how is that possible, right?) So….here is the recipe for the Salted Caramel Sauce…it is amazingly yummy on ice cream…let me know if you would use it differently? (perhaps for apple-dipping?????)

Salted Caramel Sauce (fast and easy…and Make-Ahead)

1 stick of butter, room temp

1 1/2 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 tsp sea salt

1 C. heavy cream

1 Tbs vanilla

In a heavy pan, add the butter, salt and cream. Melt to combine on low heat. Once melted, turn heat to medium and bring it to a boil. Boil, stirring constantly, for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. (can be made ahead)

What did I love about this recipe? I love caramel. It is so rich! Add salt to it and the sweet-salty taste is killer!

What didn’t I love about this recipe? Well, the only thing I didn’t like about it was that it was just too much for the Pear Crisp I made. So…I would definitely make it again…just as more of a topping for ice cream or perhaps a thin layer on a cake of some sort.
