Peanut Butter Caramel Sauce

Stop what you’re doing right now and make this. I’m not kidding.

  • ingredients
  • 1/2 cup sugar Pantry
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream $1.50 for a pint
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (either chunky or creamy will work) Pantry
  • dash of salt Pantry
  • 2 tsp vanilla $4 for 4 oz.
Total Cost of Ingredients $5.50


In a dry saucepan over medium heat, let the sugar cook until it begins to melt. Continue cooking and whisk slowly and gently until it has completely melted (be patient—this can take several minutes).

Remove pan from stove and slowly and gently whisk in the cream. Return to heat and whisk, allowing any sugar chunks to dissolve.

Add peanut butter slowly in increments and gently whisk in, until blended. Add salt and vanilla and cook for 1-2 more minutes.

Let sauce cool until it is just warm (not hot). Serve over ice cream.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Warm the refrigerated sauce in the microwave or in a small pot before serving.

Makes about 1 cup of sauce.

Mmmmmm… this sounds so good! I will buy some vanilla ice cream and try it. Question— I usually buy all-natural PB which has no sugar added (sometimes no salt). Should I try it as-is or increase the caramel-to-PB ratio?

I want to head home right this very minute to make this! One of my favorite desserts to make is a PB cake with PB icing, but baking in the summer isn’t always ideal. This would be a good way to get a PB fix & stay cool. YUM!
