Watch It!

  • Use a clean and heavy bottom pot for your caramel to avoid crystallization. Gently warm your cream before adding to the caramel. You don’t want it bubbling over!

  • Place sugar into a heavy pot and pour water over top. Place your pot on medium-high heat and cover with a lid. Once you see the sugar beginning to boil, remove your pot lid.

  • Place your cold butter into a heatproof bowl and rest a sieve on top.

  • Heat your heavy cream in the microwave for about one minute, or until hot.

  • Continue to watch your sugar until it starts changing color. Once amber in colour, use a wooden spoon to stir the sugar until even in colour. Remove your pot from the heat.

  • Slowly pour in half of your hot heavy cream into your sugar mixture, stirring carefully. Pour in the remaining hot cream and stir until combined.

  • Pour the sugar and cream mixture through the sieve onto the cold butter. Let the butter melt into your mixture for about 5 minutes.

  • Gently stir the mixture until it comes together.

  • Set aside to cool completely and thicken.

  • This recipe keeps in the fridge for up to a month in an airtight container.
