Ah! Salted caramel!!! I love the combination of sweet & salty just like in this sauce. We can find this salty/sweet trend everywhere these days especially in chocolate cookie recipes. Yum is right!!!
Did you know that salt is usually added to cake & cookie batters along with many other desserts? Just a pinch of salt is added to the batter of an entire cake to help strengthen the flavors, making them more prominent. In this case, a little extra salt is added (by ratio) to make the salt flavor stand out along with the caramel flavor.
I’ve used this recipe as a filling to this absolutely delicious chocolate fondant recipe.
What’s great about this recipe is that you can prepare it in advance & chill it for up to 1 week or freeze it for up to 1 month.
