caramel au beurre salé

salted butter caramel

Crêpe bretonne au caramel au beurre salé

Caramel au beurre salé comes as a sauce or a spread in a jar (the best kind are ‘cuit au chaudron’ or cooked in a cauldron, the old-fashioned form). You can also find it in a soft candy form, often salted with the local sel de Guérande.

Bretons like to dribble it on crêpes, but it has a thousand other uses in desserts.
