Keeping things sweet today with this Easy Homemade Caramel Sauce. It’s everyone’s favorite topping, just made better and easier! This delicious sauce is only made with 5 very simple ingredients…sugar, salt, heavy cream, butter, and vanilla. This caramel sauce takes only minutes to prepare, is gluten free, vegetarian, and needs absolutely no specialty equipment to make. You definitely can’t beat this sauce, it’s delicious and actually really easy to make! It's also SO much better than anything you can buy at the store.

Caramel sauce is just one of those necessities for dessert, you know? It may be sticky and get everywhere...but you just can't beat the amazing flavor it adds to everything!

I, personally, am a huge fan of just vanilla ice cream with a load of this dumped on top. It's classic! But, you can really add this to just about anything. My personal favorite as of late is this drizzled over the top of homemade beignets...
