1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) butter

1 1/2 cups cream

3 cups brown sugar 

1/2 tablespoon salt

3 tablespoons vanilla extract


  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the cream and whisk gently. When warm, add the brown sugar and salt, and whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and carefully add the vanilla (the mixture will bubble quite a bit!). Stir and then pour into a container. Use as a sauce for ice cream.
