Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe

Our Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe is one of my favorite recipes around the holidays!  This makes an excellent homemade “gift in a jar” idea too.  This is a candy recipe that literally melts in your mouth!  Yeah, it’s good!!!  This sauce thickens as it cools but you can also warm it in the microwave for 30 seconds and it thins right up!  I love eating it both ways!

We have some free salted caramel printable labels for you to use too.  Just print them out on some round label paper and cut with decorative scissors and you are all set!  We used the small 8 oz pint sized mason jars for this project.  They were super hard to find in the stores too.  I would have saved lots of time and gas just buying them online.  Next we added some decorative holiday ribbon finishes off this cute gift idea and adds that extra special touch.

  1. I made it the other day. It was very easy and tasted great but I never got mine to firm up. It was firm when I added the butter but when I slowly added the cream it went thin again. What am I doing wrong?? Great recipe!!!!!

  2. I made this when you posted this caramel recipe last time. It was very easy to make following the directions and it is absolutely delicious!! I will make it again in the future. It would definitely impress guests when you entertain.

  3. 5 stars
    Okay, so is this to eat plain (like with a spoon) or is it to serve as a topping like for ice cream? It looks amazing!

    1. Nope. I’ve had mine out on the counter for a week and no issues. Also, at the ice cream shop (many moons ago) we used to always leave ours out too. No refrigeration needed.
