Caramel Sauce for Mari Tuttle's Caramel Sea Salt Brownies
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup hot water
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pour sugar into heavy skillet and caramelize over low heat; constantly stirring until it has completely melted and is light brown in color.
Remove from heat and very slowly stir in hot water. Don't worry if sugar clumps, it will melt again when you reheat the mixture.
Return the pan to medium heat; stirring to melt sugar clumps. Mixture will begin to boil. Continue boiling until mixture thickens and the boil isn't as rapid.
Remove from heat; add butter, salt and vanilla. Strain if there are remaining sugar clumps.
Yield: 1 cup
