Caramel Sauce


This mixture is super hot and will splatter when you add the cream, so wear long gloves to avoid sugar burns.

Recipe courtesy of Ditta Kasdan, DeeDee’s Ice Cream


  • 1 cup (250 ml) sugar
  • 6 Tbsp (90 ml) butter, cut in cubes
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) whipping cream


  1. Use a pot with heavy bottom and high sides and have all ingredients ready.
  2. Over medium heat, melt sugar slowly, stirring only when necessary with a wooden spatula to gently push sugar to keep from burning.
  3. Sugar should reach an even liquid state with no lumps and should look shiny, silky and almost smoking. Take care not to burn and turn down heat if necessary.
  4. Add butter and mix with sugar, stirring and cooking until the mixture becomes homogenized. Add cream, whisk well and remove from heat.
