  • 1 cup cream
  • ½ cup raw honey (you can sub sucanat, or coconut sugar – when made with sucanat or coconut sugar, the recipe will be a deeper caramel color than with honey)
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 pinch sea salt


  • Place cream, honey (or sucanat/coconut sugar) and butter in a small pot. Bring to a boil over medium/high heat, whisking occasionally.
  • Reduce heat to medium and allow to boil gently for 7-12 minutes. Coconut sugar is more prone to burning so I keep the cooking time around seven minutes and check it often. Honey, on the other hand, takes the longest to develop a caramel flavor – about 12 minutes, sometimes longer.
  • Stir in the salt and then place in the fridge to cool. Warm to room temperature before serving.
