Christmas Gift or Treat – Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe
Cuisine: Dessert
Author: Glasgow Foodie
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 2 jars
  • 400g white granulated sugar
  • 75g butter
  • 160ml water
  • 250ml single cream
  • 1 tbsp good sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Add sugar to a heavy bottomed shallow pan then add water.
  2. Melt the sugar/water over a medium to high heat bringing the mixture to a boil.
  3. Shake the pan (don’t stir) to keep the contents mixed.
  4. Take off the heat when reaching an amber colour.
  5. Add the butter and whisk.
  6. Then add the cream and salt, and whisk.
  7. Decant the sauce to a waiting cold container (not plastic), and allow it to cool down.

Jars will keep for around two week in the fridge, if you can resist!

You can reheat the salted caramel, heat as you would melt chocolate, in a bowl or pot that fits over a pan of simmering water. This helps the sauce not burn.

Enjoy 🙂
