This peanut butter caramel is sweet, salty, and just a tad peanut buttery. It makes for a delicious topping to your dessert or some fruit. Homemade caramel sounds hard, but you can make this easy recipe in just 10 minutes.
Add ½ c heavy whipping cream, 4 T butter, and ¾ c brown sugar to pot. Cook over medium-low heat. Stir regularly.
Caramel will develop consistent bubbles and will thicken up a bit. Stir occasionally.
Check caramel at 7 minutes, if it's thickened a bit, then take it off heat source, if not cook for 2 more minuets. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 2 teaspoon peanut butter powder, then serve or pour into a glass bottle and refrigerate to save for later.
Dip apples, graham crackers, and other treats into this caramel sauce.
Peanut butter powder is a great flavor enhancer for this caramel
Use dark brown sugar to get a deeper caramel flavor.
Do not stir while cooking, or caramel may become clumpy.
Remove right before you think it's thick enough. Once it seems thick enough, it'll harden pretty easily.
Swap peanut butter powder for 1-2 teaspoon creamy peanut butter if you don't have peanut butter powder.
