3 Easy Caramel Sauce

I needed a quick, easy caramel sauce for a special dessert.  This is not a true caramel, like in David Lebovitz's Salted Butter ice cream recipe, but I didn't want to burn my finger.

With four simple ingredients and five minutes, it couldn't be easier.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat.  Do not substitute with margarine.
You must use butter.

Add brown sugar.

Whisk until combined and thickened; about two minutes.  Take off the heat.

Whisk in the whipping cream, until fully blended ~ about 2 more minutes.

Mix in vanilla and you are done!  



The sauce is very runny, but will thicken up nicely in the fridge overnight.

Use this creamy, buttery sauce over your favorite dessert or ice cream.

Or simply stick a spoon in the jar and enjoy it straight up...

Simply irresistible .... addictive ...  so good!

Stay tuned for my next post ~ a yummy dessert that has this caramel sauce drizzled on top...

Quick N Easy Caramel Sauce


  1. I'm so glad you didn't go with a true caramel and burn your finger like I did- haha! I actually made a caramel frosting last week that is very similar to your caramel sauce, and I did it for the same reasons as you! haha Everyone loved it. :)


  2. Aha! Definitely need to remember that recipe. I've always wanted a proper caramel sauce!
