Ingredients

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter *
  • 1 tsp sea salt or to taste
  • 1/2 cup half and half or use equal parts heavy cream and milk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small/medium saucepan and simmer over low heat, whisking constantly or until thickened and no longer watery (6-9 min). Keep in mind it thickens more as it cools.

Recipe Notes

*If using salted butter, reduce salt to 1/2 tsp or add it to taste.
