Everybody loves caramel sauce but peanut butter caramel sauce takes your traditional ice cream topping to another level!

Homemade PEANUT BUTTER Caramel Sauce! amazing

I haven’t been doing a ton of baking since L was born. I’ve been having a little trouble motivating myself and finding my creativity. In fact, when I made these cookies, I ended up taking more pictures of L than I did the cookies. Whoops! He is just too cute sometimes and I can’t help myself.

So when I saw this recipe, I was obviously excited.since I decided to make peanut butter caramel sauce the next day. My mom was here helping with L and I took about ten minutes in the kitchen to whip this up. Basically the best way to spend a few minutes away from that little monkey if I have to.

The sauce turned out pretty darn amazing… I kind of feel like I should always have a batch of it on hand. Other than eating it straight from the jar with a spoon you can do so many things with this sauce… ice cream sundaes (obviously), cake, Oreo bars….. the list goes on! AND I have a new idea coming to you later this week.

Recipe type: Dessert
Makes: 1¼ cups

Ingredients
  • 160 grams / 5⅝ ounces (3/4 cup) granulated sugar
  • [45] milliliters / 3 tablespoons water
  • 117 milliliters / 4 fluid ounces ( ½ cup) heavy cream
  • 29 milliliters / 1 fluid ounces (2 tablespoons) milk (any type)
  • 2 grams (1 teaspoon) coarse or flaky sea salt
  • 77 grams / 2 ¾ ounces (¼ cup) creamy peanut butter (not all natural)

Instructions
  1. Combine the sugar and water in a medium* heavy-duty saucepan and cook over high heat, whisking until the sugar dissolves
  2. Let boil for several minutes without stirring until the mixture becomes a deep amber color, watching closely so it doesn’t burn; Once the caramel begins to darken, the rest of the process happens very quickly (see photos above for caramelization process)
  3. As soon as most of the sugar water mixture is a deep amber, whisk in the cream (be careful as mixture will bubble up) and remove from heat immediately
  4. Whisk in milk and sea salt
  5. Place pot back over low heat and quickly whisk in peanut butter; remove from heat as soon as combined
  6. Serve warm or store covered in refrigerator up to two weeks**

Notes
Adapted from my salted caramel and this peanut butter caramel
*If doubling, use a large pot and allow extra time for caramelization
**For thicker sauce, chill in refrigerator for a few hours before using or serving; re-heat gently before serving

Homemade PEANUT BUTTER Caramel Sauce! To die for.
