  • Everyone loves caramel - but wait until you try it with a dash of vanilla, or even a pinch of crushed sea salt.
  • Serve your delicious caramel sauce warm, at room temperature, or chilled, depending on your preference.
  • Your caramel sauce will last for up to 2 weeks if stored in an airtight container. Remember that you can re-warm it if it’s too thick and not drizzle-able enough!
