  • 200 gr granulated sugar
  • 100 gr butter (at room temperature and cut in small pieces)
  • 120 ml lactose free heavy cream
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Heat the granulated sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a thick brown liquid as you continue to stir. Be careful not to burn.
  • Once the sugar is completely melted, immediately add the butter. Watch out in this step because the caramel will bubble rapidly when the butter is added.
  • Stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely melted. If you notice the butter separating, remove from heat and whisk to combine it again. 
  • Very slowly drizzle in the lactose-free heavy cream while stirring. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute. Because the heavy cream is colder than the caramel, the mixture will rapidly bubble when added.
  • Remove the caramel sauce from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon of salt. Allow it to slightly cool down before using. The Caramel sauce thickens as it cools.
  • Covered the caramel sauce can be stored for up to 1 month in the refrigerator. You can reheat in the microwave or on the stove for the desired consistency.
