  1. I have never tried to make my own Caramel Sauce before. I will have to try this recipe. It looks so delicious and fairly easy to make.

  2. Where do I start! I don’t want to make it – I just want to EAT EAT EAT it. I just don’t think I will have the patience to finish this deliciousness

  3. I didn’t realize it was so easy to make this! Now I’m going to be putting Salted Caramel Sauce on everything.

  4. I know you are probably supposed to put the sauce on top of something, but I just want to drink it straight. It sounds so good!

  5. Umm yumm!!! I’m really hoping I have some gelato in my freezer still. It would be so good with caramel.

  6. Would you judge me if I told you I was sitting here with a pint of Talenti Sea Salted Caramel Gelato because I have a salted caramel addiction? Therefore your post has me bookmarking faster than you can say “Oh I’m so glad to hear that!”.
    Lee 🙂

    1. Haha. I LOVE Talenti gelato! I hide it behind things in the freezer so I can have more than one bite of it before everyone else gets to it!

  7. I love anything that is salted caramel and this topping looks absolutely amazing! We do a huge sundae bar on July 4th while we watch fireworks. I’m thinking I need to make some of this!

  8. This looks amazing! I love how versatile this sauce can be… but i’m not sure if i made it, it would last to be served on any food! Ha! Love it! 🙂

  9. That looks so good! Doesn’t seem too difficult to make either, I may not even mess it up! This looks great!

  10. Oh yes! My mouth is totally watering over this. I love anything salted-caramel. Thanks so much for sharing… YUMMY!

  11. I’m bumping another dessert recipe off the menu for Girls Week Away to make room for this. We’ll be hiking a lot. We can burn this off. Or not. Who cares. We’re having it!

    1. Thank you! I figure since it is color sensitive to when you add the butter it would be helpful to see 🙂

  12. Oh my goodness! That looks fantastic! I love salted caramel everything. I can’t wait to put this on my ice cream. Yum!

    1. Before I found a recipe for it, I always thought it would be hard too! I was always scared of working with hot sugar.
