  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp. butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. salt


  1. In a large saucepan over high heat, cook the granulated sugar, stirring constantly until it is melted and forms a caramel-colored liquid. The sugar will clump, but just keep stirring!

Very slowly, pour in the heavy cream while continuing to stir. Once all of the heavy cream has been added, boil for one minute. Remove from the heat and add the salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Allow to cool completely. Transfer to a covered container and refrigerate. Use within 10-14 days.
