This caramel recipe is one of the best. The caramel is becoming thick at cold temperature and is very delicious, not overly sweet like the one bought in the store. Try it with confidence and you won't regret!
Serves: 2 jars
  • 500 ml whipping cream (35% fat) equivalent with 2 cups
  • 500 grams caster sugar (2½ cups)
  • 2 spoons soft butter
  1. Put sugar in sauce pan with double bottom. Set the stove at low and caramelize the sugar until has a golden brown color. Do not burn the sugar, it will have a bitter taste.
  2. Set aside the caramelized sugar and add the soft butter stirring until combined, then add the whipping cream. The sugar will harden up like a caramel candy, but don't worry, when put on the stove again will dissolve, stirring constantly in it.
  3. When it is all dissolved and homogeneous , you can cool it down putting the pot in the sink already filled up with cold water. Then transfer it in Mason jars and keep it in the fridge. In the fridge it will harden up even more.
  4. You can add it as a topping for ice cream or for cakes in any way.
  5. It is scrumptious!!
  6. Enjoy!
