My easy homemade salted caramel sauce recipe is perfect for dipping apple slices in, pouring over warm apple or pumpkin desserts, drizzling over ice cream or using in your favorite fall recipes. And it’s ready in about 15 minutes!
Are you a salted caramel fan? I seriously can’t get enough salted caramel. Salted caramel mochas. Salted caramel sauce over ice cream. Salted caramel over anything, really.
Unfortunately, most caramel sauce you can buy at the grocery store is full of ingredients that we try our very best to avoid. So I started making my own salted caramel sauce at home.
And, oh my – it’s absolutely delicious! Better than anything you can buy – and it’s made with far better ingredients.
If you need a salted caramel sauce to complement any of your fall desserts, give this recipe a try. You won’t be disappointed!
