I love caramel’s, but it’s SO hard to get right! My sister has this AMAZING caramel recipe (I’ll share it someday I promise), what makes it so amazing is how buttery it is. So when I decided to take on caramel sauce I knew it had to have to have the buttery caramel goodness at the base.

I serve this caramel sauce over ice cream, that is if I don’t eat it all first! It’s seriously good straight. A lot of people I gave jars to last year told me they didn’t ever get to try it on ice cream because they tried it and couldn’t put it down. The best compliment a cook can ever receive!

This is the caramel sauce I use for my salted caramel cheesecake too! AND I use it as an ingredient in my Snickers cupcakes as well! (don’t miss out on my Hot Fudge either)

It’s a simple recipe that I usually triple, at least. When I’m making neighbor fits I double my triple batch, what’s that even called,sextuple the recipe? It makes 18 cups that way! Last year I made 2 sextuple batches for 36 cups, enough for me to keep some and cover 30 neighbors and friends.

Man just looking at these pictures and I want to go eat more! It’s great with vanilla ice cream, vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate ice cream and more! I like it on cake and brownies as well, and I’ll sometimes even add it to my hot chocolate! GAH! I hate writing food posts late at night, all I want now is sweets!

    Will 1 batch be enough for the cheesecake recipe? I don’t trust myself to have extra caramel sauce hanging around 🙂


    • Ashlee Marie

      I make a single batch for the cheesecake

  2. Quantina Riley

    Are you using salted butter or unsalted


    • Ashlee Marie

      salted – but I like salt – unsalted will give you more control over the salt level

  3. Tina

    Is there any substitute for corn syrup by chance?


    • Ashlee Marie

      you don’t have to use it but I recommend corn syrup – it keeps the sauce from crystalizing, gives strength and shine, I highly recommend it. it’s not the same thing as high fructose corn syrup

    I needed a quick caramel sauce to make an improvised dessert at my party for a lady who had allergies to all types of flours and nuts. (hence that made all the other desserts not on her diet) I cut up some granny Smith apples, microwaved them to pre soften then made this caramel sauce for them (which I googled on my phone). Everyone loved it and my son begs me to make it all the time and he is 20! I made it again this morning and added apples and a touch of cinnamon and put it over pancakes! Best caramel sauce ever! Thank you so much! It is now a permanent staple in our fridge.


    • Ashlee Marie

      YAY! so glad you love the sauce as much as we do! and it sounds amazing this way!
