1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 cup heavy cream
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1) Melt butter in a medium pot over medium heat; add sugar, cream, and salt and whisk to combine. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium high, whisking constantly; cook 5 minutes, until thickened, whisking. Stir in vanilla and serve.
