Three Ingredient Salted Caramel Sauce

Have you ever tried to make homemade caramel? If your answer is “No,” then let me give you a piece of advice: never try it. Homemade caramel, using sugar, butter, and cream, is the hardest thing to make in the world. It’s incredibly finicky: if you don’t boil it long enough it doesn’t get that…
