How to Make Sriracha-Caramel Sauce
This easy caramel sauce has all the sweet, buttery notes of the traditional recipe, but with a subtle spicy bite.
Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice
The only thing better than caramel sauce on a sundae? Sriracha-caramel sauce. Make your favorite caramel sauce recipe (or use store-bought), and then swirl in about a tablespoon of Sriracha per cup of sauce. This works best with light-to-amber caramel; dark caramel does better without.
In One Pan
Simmer together 2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons corn syrup and a big pinch of salt.
Then, Add 1 Cup Cream
Whisk until the butter melts.
... add 1 cup sugar to a large skillet and cook, undisturbed, until the sugar starts to brown, about 5 minutes. Then, continue to cook while swirling occasionally but not stirring, until the sugar is deep brown, about 10 to 15 more minutes.
Remove from Heat
Then add the caramel to the cream mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens, about 5 more minutes.
Add Sriracha to Taste
Add it once the caramel and cream mixture are fully incorporated.
