This dessert sauce is easy to make. Children and adults will have fun watching the sugar melt and transform. Sauce is great over ice cream or other desserts.

Salted  Caramel  Sauce
Makes 1 cup

1 cup granulated sugar
6 tablespoons butter, cut into 6 pieces
½ cup regular or heavy whipping cream at room temperature
½ to ¾ teaspoon salt

1. Heat granulated sugar in heavy 1-quart or 1.5-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly with a high-heat-resistant rubber spatula or a wooden spoon. Sugar will form clumps and then melt into a thick, amber-colored liquid as you continue to stir.
2. As soon as sugar is completely melted, add pieces of butter. Be careful, because caramel will bubble vigorously as butter is added.
3. Stir butter until it is completely melted, about 2 minutes.
4. Very slowly and carefully drizzle cream into pan while stirring. Expect mixture to rapidly boil and possibly splatter at this stage.
5. Allow mixture to boil only 1 minute. It will rise in pan as it boils.

6. Remove from heat and stir in salt. Allow to cool somewhat before using. Pour into leftovers into jar and refrigerate.

Make several batches if necessary rather than doubling recipe.
