Caramelize Sugar

  • Add sugar and butter to a small saucepan over medium heat.
    3-4 T sugar, 1 T butter
  • As the butter melts, stir to combine with the sugar.
  • Meanwhile, microwave the milk to warm it.
    2 cups milk
  • Cook to a deep amber.
    Be careful not to let it burn! You can also caramelize less if you want a less intense caramel flavor.
  • When sugar is ready, remove from heat.

Combine w/ Milk

  • Add milk in a steady stream as you stir.
    The sugar will seize up and there will be sizzling, but keep stirring.
  • Place back on stovetop over low heat.
    Make sure to keep the heat sufficiently low so that you don't boil the milk.
  • Continue stirring until all of the caramelized sugar is melted into the milk.


  • Store the left overs in the fridge.
