Salted Maple Caramel Sauce

Salted Maple Caramel Sauce from

I can’t believe its really November. Where has this year gone? I realized over the weekend that I had yet to make anything pumpkin and knew that had to change. Of course, I had to have my kitchen available for me to cook in. My husband completely highjacked the kitchen this weekend to finish working on our kitchen revamp project. He added in the subway tile backsplash… can I just tell you how in love I am with it–and the grout isn’t even in yet! So while I sat kitchen-less I brainstormed up a few recipes. A few of my recipes involved caramel sauce and thus this Salted Maple Caramel Sauce was born!

Caramel sauce is incredibly easy to make at home. If you have butter, sugar, and cream you can make caramel sauce. Some methods even require no cream! I prefer my caramel sauce with cream because who doesn’t love extra calories (I kid)?!?! I wanted to give my caramel sauce a taste of fall so I decided to get wild and crazy and add in some maple syrup oh and I used brown sugar instead of traditional white sugar! I didn’t have any on hand but if you happened to have maple extract on hand you could always give it a few drops to really intensify the flavor. Salted Maple Caramel Sauce from

So stay tuned over the next few weeks as you see how I’ve incorporated this decadent Salted Maple Caramel Sauce into so many delicious recipes!

      I know–perfect for the fall months and if you had extract it would intensify the flavor.
