Easy All In One Salted Caramel Sauce

Salted caramel, everyone has gone crazy for it and so they should!  It’s one of life’s amazing inventions, very sweet but with a touch of salt to balance it out it’s perfect in every way.  I decided to make some as I wanted to have a base for my buttercream for some macarons that I was making but also for a last minute dessert drizzled over ice cream.

I found a really simple all in one recipe which saves you the hassle of having to deal with a sugar thermometer or the risk of burning which happens often when sugar and me are involved.

A few tips to help you out:

  • To measure out the golden syrup without it getting everywhere, heat a spoon under hot water and then spoon the syrup.  The heat will help slide the syrup off the spoon
  • Salted butter is best to add that extra saltiness
  • Ensure that you use coarse salt rather than table salt as they have quite a different taste
  • The salt is just a guide, you might find you may need more to suit your taste
