More About This Recipe

  • We say, salted caramel makes every dessert better. Case in point: these incredibly simple salted caramel cookies that are easy to make in a pinch. You only need four ingredients! The caramel sauce couldn’t be easier. Just grab a bag of caramels from the store, heat them unwrapped in the microwave, sprinkle with some sea salt and, boom! Almost-instant salted caramel sauce. Of course, you can make your own salted caramel sauce from scratch if you have the time and want to give it a try. You only need a few pantry staples to make it: 1 cup of light corn syrup, 1 ¼ cups of packed brown sugar, ¼ cup of butter, 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and some sea salt. Simply heat the corn syrup, butter and brown sugar in a saucepan on the stove to boiling and then stir on low heat constantly for five minutes. Stir in the whipping cream and heat until boiling. Then allow the sauce to cool for 30 minutes. Add some sea salt and sprinkle over your cookies! You can store this sauce in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to two months.
