This fuss free delicious, indulgent and easy three ingredient caramel toffee sauce with honey recipe is sweet, sticky, gooey and delicious. Enjoy it in so many ways.
Three Ingredient Caramel Toffee Sauce with Honey
Food is so much better with a sauce; crisps with dips, chicken with lots of gravy, a steak with a Stilton sauce, apple pie and custard or an indulgent sticky toffee pudding with lashings of toffee sauce.
This three ingredient toffee sauce is sticky, buttery and has a lovely almost sharp note from the honey which cuts through some of the sweetness. Spread in a cake, put a dollop into a milkshake or even eat with a spoon straight from the jar whilst standing in front of the fridge.
How to make Toffee Sauce with Honey
Step one – weigh out the ingredients and add them all to a saucepan. Add a pinch of sea salt for a salted caramel honey sauce.
Step two – heat over a medium heat stirring all the time until bubbling. The sauce is ready when the bubbles change – the layer of bubbles gets thicker and the bubbles themselves larger, and the sauce becomes sticky and will coat the back of a spoon.
Step three – Allow to cool a little. Warm some jam jars with boiling water, and decant the sauce into the jars. Wait before licking the spoon – boiling sugar syrup is very hot and sticky!

This sounds like a great recipe. Homemade is always best as it tastes sooo much better. I drizzle mine over cake and that works pretty well.
Drizzled over cake is a perfect way to use this kind of sauce.

So I’m pretty obsessed with caramel sauce to begin with, but adding toffee!? Be still my heart. I, also, use those old Bonne Maman jars for storing everything like this – they’re perfect!
The jars are just the right size, and a nice wide top for easy cleaning.

This looks so lovely, honey is such a great addition, I can imagine it really giving that great depth of flavour
Honey gives a subtle flavour of deliciousness. A lovely addition.
I agree I like some kind of sauce with all my food. This was be delicious on most deserts
So many different ways you can enjoy it.
Oh man, this looks amazing! We love honey and caramel, so having them mixed together would be awesome!
A delicious combination of two lovely flavours.
Helen, if I could reach through the screen for this, then I absolutely would do. My idea of heaven x
this looks so good. I bet it’s delicious over pancakes
it would be amazing over pancakes!
This sounds delicious and it’s certainly something I’d pour over a scoop, or 2, or vanilla ice cream! Not forgetting the added addition of a flake!
the flake sounds the perfect addition!
Never made anything like this before and had no idea how long to carry on stirring once the sauce had started to bubble. Needless to say, mine’s not a sauce. I made toffee by mistake! ???
Hi Donna, Sorry that happened, I go by the size of the bubbles and it takes a few minutes, I’ll do a rework with some timings and a temperature.
Haha, yeah, I often do that when I’m trying to make caramel sauce, too! I waited for mine to bubble all over the top, then cooked it over medium heat for 1 minute. It turned out thick and syrupy. I suppose if you wanted it thinner, like caramel syrup, you could just bring it to a boil and then remove it from the heat right away.
Love caramel sauce so much. Great to have an easy recipe I can make myself.
It is a really handy recipe to have at hand for easy to make sauce you’ll love.
sounds like the perfect partner to icecream. Very tasty.
Perfect with ice cream.
I don’t think this would last long once made, I’d be eating it straight out of the jar.
Far too tempting to eat by the sppon from the jar.
Great that there are so few ingredients. All things I usually have in the store cupboard. Will have to give this a go.
So easy to make, Amy. Love simple recipes.
Last time I tried to make caramel sauce, it ended up like toffee. I guess I over cooked it! Great recipe, thanks for the tips.
Timing and temperature are key to getting it right.
This is the perfect sauce for ice cream, just right for summer. Love it.
I always appreciate handy simple recipes, and this is ideal for a touch of sweet tooth.
You cannot go wrong with a caramel sauce. Always useful and easy to make.
Yummy! I can think of all kinds of uses for your toffee sauce. Looks delicious.
This sounds delicious Helen, particularly with the touch of honey. Drizzled over waffles, with banana and clotted cream. Mouth watering just thinking about it.
Hi! Can you measure the ingredients (i.e. per cup, etc..)in equal amounts instead of weighing them?
In cup measurements, this would be the same as using half a cup in each ingredient. So yes, as long as they are equal, cup measurements are fine.
I would like to make this for Christmas gifts. How long will it keep and does it need to be refrigerated. Can it be canned?
It will keep a few weeks in the fridge – I’ve not tried canning it.
Hi, i was just wondering what the rough shelf life of this toffee caramel sauce is? It sounds delicious but I’m not sure I’d go through it that quickly. Thanks
It will keep a good few weeks in a sealed jar in the fridge. You can always half the recipe, but be very careful when cooking a smaller quality as it is very easy to over cook it and turn it into toffee.
I just tried this amazing recipe,,,,thanks for sharing
Can you cook the Honey toffee sauce to hard ball stage and pour over popped popcorn?
i Jackie, I cant see why not, but it might get very stocky.
