  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup half and half
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Combine sugar and water in a medium size sauce pan on medium heat, until sugar has dissolved.
  • Increase heat to medium low and cook mixture until it turns a light amber color.
  • Take off of heat and slowly whisk in half and half. NOTE: use a long handled whisk or spoon since the syrup is very hot and will bubble up.
  • Add butter, salt and cinnamon, stirring until all mixed.


Let cool to serve as a dip. Can be kept in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
