SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE:

You can buy the one that is readily available in grocery stores or make your own. Homemade sauce is much better, my daughter used it on everything from ice-cream to cookies and even just plain spoonful of this sauce. It’s that good!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream

Method:

Heat sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Cook,do not stir just swirl the pan by moving  it small circles slowly. Let boil,until the liquid becomes light amber . Remove from heat and add butter and cream. Be careful before this step, because when you add butter and cream, the caramel will steam and it will splatter. once you have mixed it, you have your caramel sauce ready to be used on these cupcakes. Keep the sauce refrigerated in an airtight glass jar.
