Caramel Sauce

Caramel Sauce

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 14 oz


  • 8 oz Granulated sugar
  • 2 oz Water
  • 6 oz Heavy Whipping Cream


  • Combine the sugar and water in a heavy saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  • With a pastry brush and some water, lightly damped the sides of the saucepan to avoid crystallization.
  • Do Not Stir! Stirring will cause the sugar to crystallize. Swirl the saucepan instead in a circular motion.
  • Lower the heat once the sugar starts turning to turn color.
  • Be Extremly Careful! Caramel is EXTREMLY HOT and will burn you if not handled properly.
  • Once the sugar has turned a light golden brown, add the heavy whipping cream. At this point, add the heavy whipping cream in a steady stream while mixing with a wooden spoon fairly quickly.
  • Once the mixture and heavy whipping cream have combined, take it off the stove and serve in heat proof containers/bowls and let it come to room temperature.


Flavor Combination:
Add a little bit of Sea Salt for Salted Caramel. (To Taste)
Add a little bit of liquor to the cooled caramel to get a nice Cordial sauce. (To Taste)
