How long does caramel sauce last in the fridge?
Store Salted Caramel Sauce in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one month (I promise it’ll never last that long).
Can you freeze salted caramel sauce?
It must be placed in an airtight container (not glass) and can be frozen for up to three months. When you are ready to use the sauce, allow it to thaw completely in the fridge before using. Pour it into a skillet and heat, stirring, until smooth.
How do you make caramel sauce thicker?
Toward the end of cooking, decrease heat to medium-low and allow the caramel to simmer for a few additional minutes (stir frequently to avoid burning). Remember that the caramel sauce will thicken once it cools, but if you want it even thicker dissolve 1 teaspoon of cornstarch in 1 tablespoon of water. Stir the mixture into the caramel.
Enjoy this delectable salted caramel sauce and have a great rest of your week, my friends!
