How To Make Caramel Sauce:
Step 1: Melt The Butter And Add Brown Sugar
Melt butter in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and stir vigorously with a whisk or wooden spoon as the sugar begins to dissolve. Combine the mixture well.
Step 2: Add Cream
Add cream and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes. Add vanilla and a pinch of sea salt. Stir well until properly mixed.
Step 3: Let It Cool
Let the caramel cool in the pan for a few minutes before pouring into a glass mason jar. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Warm in microwave before serving.
