Sweets with a little bit of saltiness to them are definitely trending right now. Snacks like the sweet and salty cookie dough pretzel bites and desserts like salted chocolate chunk cookies give us a delicious mix of sweet and salty flavors when we just can’t decide what we’re in the mood for. This salted caramel recipe from the One Pot Chef is the perfect topping for anything sweet that needs a kick. Think brownies, ice cream, or even cupcakes. We’re pretty sure this will be your new favorite way to upgrade any dessert.

Here’s what you need to make them:
