To make the delicious Himalayan Salted Caramel, you will need the following ingredients:

Himalayan Pink Salt

Himalayan Pink Salt is the star of this recipe. Known for its beautiful pink hue and unique flavor, this salt adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any dish. It is exceptionally rich in minerals and imparts a subtle yet distinct taste to the caramel.


The sugar is what gives the caramel its sweet and indulgent flavor. You can use regular granulated sugar for this recipe, or if you prefer a deeper flavor, opt for brown sugar.


Butter is an essential ingredient in making caramel. It adds richness and creaminess to the sauce, making it smooth and velvety on the palate.

Heavy Cream

Heavy cream provides the caramel with its creamy texture and helps bring all the flavors together. Its richness balances out the sweetness of the sugar, creating a perfect harmony.

Vanilla Extract

Vanilla extract is used to enhance the flavor profile of the caramel. It adds a subtle yet aromatic taste that complements the sweetness and brings out the richness of the other ingredients.


To prepare the Himalayan Salted Caramel, follow these simple steps:

Preparing the Salt

Before you begin making the caramel, it is important to prepare the Himalayan Pink Salt. Take a pinch of salt and crush it into a fine powder using a mortar and pestle. This will ensure that the salt dissolves evenly into the caramel, enhancing its flavor without any gritty texture.

Creating the Caramel

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the sugar over medium heat. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon until the sugar melts and turns into a golden brown liquid. Be careful not to let it burn.

Adding the Salt

Once the sugar has melted completely and attained a deep amber color, remove the saucepan from heat. Add a small amount of the prepared Himalayan Pink Salt and stir well until it is fully incorporated into the caramel.

Cooling and Storing

Allow the caramel to cool slightly before transferring it to a glass jar or airtight container. Once cooled, seal the container and store it in the refrigerator. The caramel will thicken as it cools and can be stored for up to two weeks.

Tips and Variations

Here are some tips and variations you can explore while making Himalayan Salted Caramel:

Using Different Types of Salt

While Himalayan Pink Salt is the star of this recipe, feel free to experiment with other types of salt. Sea salt, fleur de sel, or even smoked salt can add unique flavors to your caramel. Just remember to crush them into a fine powder before adding to ensure even distribution.

Adding Nuts or Chocolate

For extra indulgence, you can incorporate your favorite nuts or chocolate into the caramel. Chopped almonds, pecans, or even swirls of melted dark chocolate can take your salted caramel to the next level of deliciousness.

Making Salted Caramel Sauce

If you prefer a runnier caramel sauce that is perfect for drizzling over desserts or ice cream, simply adjust the amount of heavy cream used in the recipe. Add a little more cream while the caramel is still warm, and stir until you achieve the desired consistency.


Here are some frequently asked questions about Himalayan Salted Caramel:

What is Himalayan pink salt?

Himalayan pink salt is a type of rock salt mined in the Himalayan region. It gets its unique pink color from the minerals present in the salt, and it is known for its rich mineral content and distinct flavor.

Can I use regular salt instead?

While regular salt can be used as a substitute, the flavor and texture of the caramel may differ. Himalayan Pink Salt specifically complements the sweetness of the caramel and adds a subtle complexity to the overall taste. However, if you don’t have any on hand, regular salt can still be used to achieve a similar result.

How long does the caramel last?

When stored properly in an airtight container in the refrigerator, the Himalayan Salted Caramel can last for up to two weeks. However, it is so irresistibly delicious that it often gets used up long before then!

Can I reheat the caramel?

Yes, you can absolutely reheat the caramel. Simply remove the desired amount from the refrigerator and place it in a heatproof container. Microwave it in short intervals, stirring in between, until it reaches the desired consistency. Just be sure to use caution as the caramel can become very hot.
