  • 1-2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • Take a sauce pan and coat the entire bottom of it with granulated sugar.
  • Next, turn your heat to medium low. The sugar will begin to dissolve as it melts down into a clear liquid.
  • Then, swirl the liquid around a bit just to make sure the remaining sugar also melts.
  • Once the sugar has completely melted down and turned a golden color, add in about a 1/2 to 3/4 cup of heavy cream (depending on how big your pan is and how much sugar you added) and quickly whisk together.
  • Continue to quickly whisk and allow the caramel to thicken and become a wonderful rich and smooth sauce.
  • Once smooth and thick, turn off heat and add a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract to the sauce and allow to cool.
