Sea Salt and Vanilla Bean Caramel Sauce

  • 1½ cups sugar
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1¼ cups heavy cream (used 2 cups by accident, oops.)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 vanilla bean, sliced and seeded
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  1. Slice a vanilla bean in half. Using the back of the knife, scrape the seeds from the pod.
  2. Pour the cream into a measuring cup and add the vanilla bean scrapings, and sea salt. Set aside.
  3. Put the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring the sugar to a boil. Let the sugar cook (do not stir using a spoon, at most, you may swirl the pan to avoid hot spots) until it reaches a deep amber color.
  4. Whisk in the cream mixture. It will bubble and go nuts, but keep whisking. It will come together.
  5. Pour into a jar and keep in the fridge. The sauce will thicken, but it is more of a loose sauce.
  6. This will keep for about a week in the fridge.

The Best Chocolate Sauce Ever
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa
  • 2½ teaspoons cornstarch
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • a pinch of Maldon sea salt (optional)
  1. In a saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, and cocoa.
  2. Add the water.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Let it come to a bubble.
  4. Whisk in the butter. Add vanilla, and a pinch of sea salt.
  5. Pour into a jar and get ready for an ice cream party.
