Salted Caramel Sauce // Recipe

Omaha Wedding Photographer

I’ve always been a huge fan of salted caramel anything – and it’s one of my go-to flavors for any coffee drink. I used to buy caramel creamer at the store, but once I realized how many fillers and additives there are in caramel coffee creamer, I knew I could do better.

We like to put this over ice cream, or drizzle it over biscotti. I put a little bit in my coffee each morning. What you could do with it is almost endless – the sky is the limit! Since we don’t go through it very quickly, I usually make half a batch and put it in an 8 oz jar instead. The smaller batch helps it stay fresh longer.

Salted Caramel Sauce


  • 1 c. brown sugar (I prefer to make my own brown sugar by mixing molasses and raw sugar. I like mine dark, so I add lots of molasses!)
  • 4 TBS butter (My favorite brand is Kerrygold since its made from grass fed dairy cows. This means it has healthier fats, vitamin A, and vitamin K2 in it.)
  • 1/2 c. cream or milk
  • 1/2-1 tsp salt *to taste*
  • Dash of vanilla
  1. In a saucepan, whisk brown sugar, butter, and cream together over medium heat. Bring to a simmer.
  2. Simmer for 3-5 minutes *till the sugar is dissolved* stirring constantly. Don’t overcook.
  3. Remove from heat and whisk in salt and vanilla. Store in 16 oz glass container in the fridge.
  4. Enjoy! I like to put it in my coffee, over ice cream, and it’s also good to drizzle on baked goods!

Enjoy this recipe? I also have one for my favorite Cuban Latte!
