Caramel Sauce

5 Minute 5 Ingredient Caramel Sauce

1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 heavy cream
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt

1. In a medium saucepan set over medium-low to medium heat and melt butter.  Mix in brown sugar and stir for 2 minutes (or until the sugar has completely dissolved).  Mix in heavy cream and stir for 2 more minutes.  Remove pan from heat and stir in vanilla and salt until well incorporated.
2. Pour hot caramel sauce in a jar and allow to cool completely.  Store in refrigerator for up to a month.

I made this at Laura's for Thanksgiving.  We were looking for a "fruit dish" to bring over to the Vigesaa's.  I found this recipe and it seemed simple enough.  The sauce was a hit served with green apples.  It also goes well with ice cream or just on a spoon!  So easy, and I usually have the ingredients on hand so it's easy to whip up a batch quickly to bring to someone's house.
