  • Saucepan


  • 1/2 cup Whole Milk
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Gather all the ingredients. Pour the milk and the butter in a saucepan and put it on heat. Melt the butter with the milk on low heat.
  • Add the sugar and turn up the heat. Stir once to mix. Let it boil rapidly for 5-10 minutes until mixture begins to thicken.
  • Remove from heat. Add the salt and vanilla extract. Mix it through and let it cool down completely for 15-30 minutes. Once cooled use it directly as toppings or dips!


  • To make the regular caramel sauce, reduce the salt by half which will be a tiny pinch. You can also skip the salt altogether.
  • For a really salty caramel sauce with milk, use salt up to 1/4 a teaspoon.
  • This sauce stays good in the refrigerator for up to a month.
  • Mild Crystallisation happens when stored in cool weather conditions or when stored in the refrigerator. You need to gently heat it to bring it back to a pourable consistency.
