The other night, I pulled out my 10 minutes, no machine homemade ice cream recipe and was really craving a rich homemade caramel!

Better yet, one of my favorite things to eat is my salted caramel ice cream!  Have you tried it?  It is amazing!

I was looking for a great salted caramel sauce however that you could top on ice cream, fresh fruit or even in some delicious greek yogurt!

3 Ingredients 3 Minutes Organic Salted Caramel Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: About ⅔ cup
  1. Preheat a pan on medium to medium high heat for about a minute or until nice and hot.
  2. Add maple syrup and allow it to bubble (see video).
  3. Add in butter and gentle stir in, but do not over stir.
  4. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 full minutes. It should be a rolling boil (see video).
  5. Remove from heat and turn burner off. Allow to sit until completely cooled.
  6. Add in a generous amount of coarse salt and stir. Store in refrigerator.
Please note, if you cook it to little it will still be in syrup form and if you cook it to long, it will be in candy form. Both are still good, but it might take some tweaking to get the desired consistency.

    I’d love to try these, but I am doing GAPS and can’t have maple syrup. Do you think honey will work as well?

  2. Halle Cottis says:

    I do think honey would work…if you try it, please do come back and let us know :)

  3. Marci says:

    Will this sauce work to make caramel apples?

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      Yes, I think it would work great. Let it cool a bit so it thickens and then give it a go! :)

  4. Tim Sanders says:

    This looks amazing, I can’t believe you only need 3 ingredients. I too think I will try it with organic honey instead of the maple syrup, can’t wait to try it.

    Okay, I’ve used this recipe before, and it was so delicious. I just found your website again, now it’s bookmarked, Yay!Thanks so much for a healthy recipe, and with no creamer, or half&half. Will be using today to make caramel apple cider.

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      Oh wow, that sounds delicious! :)

  6. Mari Stidham says:

    I cannot tolerate milk proteins, I’m wondering if this would work with a butter substitute (i.e. Earth Balance)? Or perhaps Ghee, which I seem to tolerate.

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      I wouldn’t use earth balance, but ghee would certainly work.

  7. Brittney says:

    Great recipe. Since it does not call for cream what would the shelf life be on this recipe?

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      I usually just make only what I will eat, but if refrigerated it should keep upwards to a month or so.
