Just 4 ingredients!

I also was not willing to have corn syrup in the recipe or other non-natural ingredients.  Four ingredients and the fourth is Maldon Sea salt Flakes.  Do you know about Maldon Sea Salt Flakes?  They really look like large flakes, perfect for salted caramel buttercreams.  You will see them in the next post.

This recipe makes one cup of luscious salted caramel sauce.  You can double the recipe that will work too.  This is wonderful caramel sauce, keep it in your refrigerator and take it out for a drizzle on your morning latte or drizzle on vanilla bean ice cream..

see the amber color?

.You could also put it in cute jars and give it as Christmas gifts!  I make it for my housekeepers.  I love to treat the hard working women that come to clean to a little break.  I make them latte’s whichever kind either decaf or regular, I set up a little coffee station for them with nice spoons, nutmeg, cinnamon and yes the caramel sauce.  Wouldn’t you want to be treated that way?

Added the butter it is bubbling

I was working on salted caramel buttercreams that were dipped in combination of dark and bittersweet chocolate.

Well, I had some of the chocolate left over (in a pan double boiler style) so I poured it out on some parchment paper, tossed some toasted pecans on top and drizzled some of the caramel on it and there was some quick as a wink chocolate bark.

Once it has cooled,  just broke it up and well, those little leftovers did not last long!

Chocolate bark, toasted pecans and easy caramel drizzled on it.

Here is the caramel recipe and the chocolate bark recipe too.  Hope you don’t mind that the bark does not have portions it truly was leftovers, but such yummy leftovers! It was sitting out on the counter and hmm it disappeared really quick!

  2. Once the sugar has melted, keep cooking but don't need to whisk, the sugar will reach a medium amber color.  Keep close eye on it- it will only take a few minutes for it to melt and get medium amber (5 min).  If it gets really dark it may taste burnt so golden or medium amber is best.

  4. Slowly pour cream into the caramel, it may once again bubble up like crazy this is fine.  Whisk until cream all incorporated and caramel sauce is smooth.   Add the Maldon sea salt flakes and stir to blend.

    […] You will get more buttercreams out of yours than I did.  It will also depend on how many buttercreams you’ll end up with if you mix in the Easy Salted Caramel Sauce that you made earlier this week or other flavorings into your batch.  […]
