- 1 cup (250 mL) packed brown sugar
- 1 cup (250 mL) corn syrup
- ¼ cup (50 mL) unsalted butter
- ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt

Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat. Carefully stir in cream, averting your face and holding the pan away from you and stirring until the mixture is smooth and foaming subsides. Be careful not to let it spatter.
Serve warm over your favorite ice cream. For a killer combo, serve hot over Dulce de Leche Ice Cream or Chocolate Ice Cream. Sauce will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 1 week.
