Cracked Pepper Salted Caramel Sauce

Prep Time1 min

Course: Dessert, Sauce
Servings: 1 jar caramel sauce
Author: Basil and Bubbly


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons butter sliced
  • ½ cup cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper


  • In a heavy bottomed, large pan with high sides set over medium heat: stir the sugar slowly but constantly until it melts into a liquid. It will get clumpy at one point, but just keep stirring until it becomes smooth and liquid.
  • Add the butter, and stir until the butter is melted and combined with the sugar. Adding the butter will cause the sugar to bubble up ( hence why you need a large pan for this recipe ), so be prepared!
  • Slowly stir in the cream, and remove from the heat as soon as all the cream has been added and mixed in with the butter/sugar mix.
  • Stir in the salt and the black pepper.
  • Serve over ice cream ( goat milk ice cream if you can find it! ), and top with more cracked black pepper.
