  • 1 Cup of heavy cream
  • 5 Tablespoons of salted butter
  • ½ Teaspoon of sea salt
  • 2 Teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups of granulated sugar


  • In a small pot, gently heat the cream, butter, and salt until the butter has melted and the salt has completely dissolved. Remove from heat, add the vanilla and whisk til combined.
  • In a larger pot, pour the sugar then heat over a medium high flame, swirling the pot occasionally to distribute the heat evenly.
  • Continue to boil the sugar until the bubbles get smaller and it becomes a rich amber color. Be careful not to over cook, check your phone or walk away. You have to watch the sugar like a damn hawk because you'll go from caramel to burnt sugar in just a matter of seconds.
  • Reduce the heat to low, and pour in the warm cream mixture SLOWLY! As you slowly pour the cream mixture, continue to whisk constantly to avoid lumps or crystals.
  • Once it has all been well incorporated, immediately transfer the hot mixture to a heat-safe vessel and cool completely. I used mason jars, but any heat safe container will do.
