  • ½ cup  half & half
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¾  cup Nutella
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt


  • Warm half & half in a microwaveable cup {about 30 to 1 minute} until steaming.
  • Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil without stirring, until amber brown. {Keep an eye on this, it can burn VERY quickly.}
  • Carefully whisk in warm cream until smooth and let cook for 1 minute {caramel will bubble & rise, so use a big enough saucepan so it does not overflow}.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in the Nutella, corn syrup, salt and vanilla extract until smooth. Transfer to a heat safe bowl. Allow to cool until thickened, then transfer to jar or container where you will store.
  • Refrigerate.
