Easy 4-Ingredient Salted Caramel Sauce

Easy 4-Ingredient Salted Caramel Sauce

A very simple homemade, sweet salted caramel recipe made with just 4 ingredients! Perfect for cookies, brownies, cakes, breads, just about anything!

To know me is to know that I am completely obsessed with salted caramel!

Well, I love all things sweet and salty so this should be no surprise to you. ;)

Never tried salted caramel before? Here’s what you can expect. A sauce that is sweet, sticky, buttery, salty, and truly decadent. Just make sure to let it cool before you take a spoonful of it. I know it will be hard to resist BUT… you WILL burn your tongue so be careful! If it looks too thin when you’re making it, don’t worry. The caramel will thicken as it cools.

YES! This homemade salted caramel recipe is only 4 ingredients! #asassyspoonClick To Tweet

Here are some recipes you can make with salted caramel:

Aside from that, you can drizzle it on fruit, spoon it over chocolate chip banana bread, give it as a gift, or just keep it all for yourself.

I mean, I would NOT blame you.

Servings: 1 cup
Author: Jamie Silva
Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, heat sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly. Sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a thick brown, amber-colored liquid as you continue to stir. Be careful not to burn it.
  2. Once sugar is completely melted, immediately add the butter. The caramel will bubble rapidly when the butter is added. Be careful. Stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely melted, about 2-3 minutes.

  3. Very slowly, drizzle in the heavy cream while stirring. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute. It will rise in the pan as it boils. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon of salt. Let cool before using.

Enjoy!

Cilantro Garlic Sauce {Pollo Tropical Copycat}

Cilantro Garlic Sauce {Pollo Tropical Copycat}

Tangy, creamy Cilantro Garlic Sauce in just 5 minutes! A creamy mix of fresh garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and sour cream that tastes just like the one from Pollo Tropical! You’ll love adding to just about anything!

This sauce is no joke, guys. People go crazy for this sauce! Don’t you? I bet you will.

Ever been to “Pollo Tropical”? Unless you’ve lived in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee or Texas, you have no idea what I’m talking about here. Pollo Tropical (literally translated to “tropical chicken”) is a Caribbean-inspired fast food concept. Meals so flavorful, you won’t even think it’s fast food!

Let’s be honest, if you’re going to go for fast food, it has to be GOOD fast food. Am I right!?

Aside from Pollo Tropical’s citrusy marinated chicken, mojo pork, yuca fries, wraps, salads and sandwiches, they have a sauce bar! Curry mustard, fresh salsa, sweet BBQ (like my guava BBQ sauce!), hot sauce, you know all those tropical flavors that you just can’t get enough of.

My favorite from the bunch? You guessed it! Cilantro Garlic Sauce!

This is not sponsored by the way. I’m just obsessed. 

At the Pollo Tropical drive-thru one day, my friend suggested I try the cilantro garlic sauce. Sure, why not? Gotta try everything once, right? She’s also a Pollo Tropical fanatic like me so I trusted her opinion.

I was HOOKED!

Immediately, I knew I had to figure out how to make this myself so I could drench it on everything. From tacos to chicken wings, this cilantro garlic sauce compliments any dish well. Get ready to have your world ROCKED!
