This was way too salty!!! We added over a cup of extra sugar to compensate. Will make again without the salt completely. Then add a dash at a time.

It was super easy to make and was almost perfect; except that it was way too salty. I sensed that a teaspoon of salt was too much and so used less but it was still way salty. Served on cheesecake it was ok but i would definitely cut the salt.

This was really easy and came out beautifully! One thing i would do differently is use less salt. It came out more like a salted caramel sauce. I happen to love salted caramel but it was a bit too much.

Put it over a warmed brownie topped w/vanilla ice cream. Turned hard on the ice cream quickly. Will have to heat it up and thin it out for next time. Still very very yummy!!
