Salted Caramel Dip

Oh.EMM.Gee. This caramel sauce is the shit. And it was so easy to make! I found a picture on Pinterest, and it lead me to the recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. This woman is spot on in her directions. Every single thing she said perfectly described the process. I will do my best to re-create it, but I encourage you to check out her site and her directions.

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar

6 tbsp salted butter, cut into 6 pieces

1/2 cup whipping cream

1 tsp salt

Step 1: add the sugar to a dry saucepan. Cook it over low-med heat, stirring constantly. The sugar will start to clump and then a brown liquid will start to form. When the sugar is completely melted, it’s ready for step two.

This is what the sugar looks like partway through.

This is closer to the “brown liquid” stage, just after this, it becomes liquid. It’s crazy how this works, but trust the process, it will work. Take it slow, and stir it constantly. I can’t stress that enough.

Step 2: add the butter

When the sugar has melted and the brown liquid has formed, add the butter. It will bubble fast. Stir it. Keep stirring until the butter has melted completely… this will take about a minute and a half.

Step 3: Whipping Cream

Slowly drizzle the cream into the hot mix. It will GO CRAZY when you do this… stir, stir, stir. You might need a second set of hands to help with this, if you don’t feel comfortable doing it by yourself.

Boil this mix for 1 minute, then remove from the heat and add 1 tsp of salt. Allow it to cool before using.

We poured this over ice cream, and it was TO DIE for. It was great on apples too.
