Can I substitute the brown sugar?
Yes, you can substitute brown sugar with granulated white sugar. However, I would like to mention that if you’re not careful watching and timing the recipe with granulated sugar. It can become a burnt mess. The reason I used brown sugar instead of granulated sugar in this recipe is that brown sugar has a more robust flavor.

How to make caramel sauce?
This recipe only calls for about 4 ingredients. Yes, you heard me right only 4 simple ingredients.
Brown sugar: I added brown sugar to this caramel recipe because of the robust flavor that brown sugar has.
Heavy whipping cream:
I use this to allow the caramel sauce to loosen up into a sauce. Without the whipping cream, you wouldn’t have a creamy delicious caramel.
The vanilla extract brings even more flavor to the homemade caramel recipe.
The heat of the caramel will eventually melt the butter causing even more flavor to be added to the mixture!
With all the sugar being used in this recipe the salt helps to balance the sweetness.
Now add all these ingredients into a saucepan and enjoy!
How long does this caramel recipe last?
This sauce can be placed in the refrigerator and can last up to 2 weeks. The only thing you will need to do is warm the sauce in the microwave for about 15 to 30 seconds.
