Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce

Prep Time 2 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Total Time 7 mins
Servings 1


  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 120 ml water
  • 3/4 cup thickened cream
  • 2 tsp sea salt


  • Dissolve the sugar into the water in a heavy bottomed saucepan and let it bubble away over a medium heat.
  • The mixture should turn a golden caramel colour after around 5 minutes. DON’T stir the caramel mixture – the sugar will crystallize.
  • Once the caramel has reached the desired colour, take it off the heat and add the salt and cream. Stir furiously as the caramel will want to harden quickly.
  • Pour the caramel cream mixture into a clean and dry jar with a secure lid.
  • Once it's completely cool, tie some ribbon around and add a gift tag.
