  • Yield: 2 cups
  • Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
  • Total Time: 20 Minutes


  • 1½ cups sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick) salted butter, cut into cubes, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup heavy cream, at room temperature
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
How to Make It
  1. In a large saucepan, heat the sugar over medium heat, stirring continuously with a whisk or spoon, for 5 to 7 minutes. The sugar will begin to turn clumpy before melting into liquid. Keep stirring, and be careful to not let it burn.
  2. Once the sugar has melted and there are no more clumps, add the butter immediately. Grab a new spoon and keep stirring until the butter has completely melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and very slowly and carefully pour in the heavy cream (watch out it will bubble up and sputter). Stir continuously for 1 minute, or until the cream has been incorporated. Remove from the heat and stir in the salt.
  4. Let cool for a few minutes in the pan and then pour into a glass jar. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Warm in the microwave for 30 seconds before serving.
