Beer and caramel. Really? We know it sounds like a strange pairing. But trust us...they’re meant to be together! This caramel sauce is super easy to make. Plus, you can keep it in the fridge for those late-night sweet tooth cravings for up to two weeks.

You will need a bottle of stout beer, dark brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract, cream and salt.
