Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this sauce. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- chocolate (you can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet)
- caster/granulated sugar
- heavy cream

How to make Salted Chocolate Caramel Sauce
To make this caramel sauce, simply add the water, sugar, and salt to a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil whilst stirring to dissolve the sugar.
Turn the heat down to medium and stop stirring. Instead, swirl the pan around occasionally to make sure the mixture caramelizes evenly.
Once the mixture becomes a rich amber colour, remove from the heat, and gradually add the heavy cream, stirring constantly. Be careful, the caramel will bubble vigorously whilst adding the cream!
Stir in the vanilla.
Now for the chocolate!
Place the caramel back on the heat, and add the melted chocolate. Stir until smooth and completely combined.
Once the chocolate is fully incorporated, pour the caramel into a heat-proof jar, and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
The caramel will harden in the fridge, so when ready to use, warm up in the microwave until you reach the desired consistency.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
