Bite Me Bit

"I like to think that I'm really tough on the outside, with a caramel-sweet center."

-Reese Witherspoon

Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, cut in cubes
½ cup heavy cream
pinch kosher salt

Directions

1) Make sure your ingredients are measured out and ready.

2) In a medium, heavy bottomed saucepan, add sugar over medium heat. Once the sugar starts to melt, start whisking and continue to whisk until it is completely melted. Once melted, stop whisking and allow the sugar to cook to a deep amber, caramel color. Immediately add the butter and whisk until it is incorporated. Remove from heat and slowly stir in the cream and salt. Pour into a glass bowl or jar and allow to cool to room temperature.
