Pumpkin Spice Caramel Sauce

Pumpkin SPice Caramel Sauce..Simple and one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten!!!

This Pumpkin Spice Caramel Sauce is CRAZY delicious!

Ok, before you yawn and be all like, “more Pumpkin Pie Spice” blah blah…caramel blah blah just you hold your horses.

Hold ’em close.

Because this, my friends, is magic caramel. MAGIC.

I know it seems quite boring-ish, but holy shamalammadingdong it’s good. SO good. Like drink with a straw and die from a sugar coma good.

Also, while sure, you can drizzle this on ice cream, cakes and cookies..think outside the box a little bit. How about over a sweet potato? YES!

My friend had a great idea and told me I should add a little to my morning coffee and OMG YES! A perfect caramel pumpkin spice coffee in my own kitchen. Dead.

I made a microwave caramel sauce over the summer which I LOVE…but this one is a stove top recipe. Don’t be scared friends, I didn’t use a candy thermometer!

You will have so-good-you’ll-die caramel sauce in like 10 minutes. It’s crazy.

Also, just know this recipe is FAB without the pumpkin pie spice, but if you want to fly with the angels you should add it.


Pumpkin Pie SPice Caramel Sauce SOOOO GOOD!!

ALso, I am going to tell you guys this is the third time I have written this post. I am currently in the air high over the earth flying to Florida. The fact that this is a first world issue is not lost on me….but HOLY GOD the airplane wi-fi is bad. So bad I can’t save the eloquently written words I have thought through to share with you. Ahem.SO I’ve written them again. AND AGAIN. My brain is now fried.

Which might be why I wrote shamalammadingdong up there.

Anyhow, moving onto caramel.

It’s really easy, I swear it. Just boil sugar and water together…

It will go from clear to a pretty amber color.


Next slowly whisk in some heavy cream and then some butter! I am loving Challenge Butter right now…no preservatives, just pasteurized sweet cream and salt!


Next whisk in your Pumpkin Pie Spice…


You only need a 1/2 teaspoon to get the perfect flavor!


It’s so pretty, isn’t it?


I poured it into a glass container to make the drizzling easier.


And it will thicken as it cools, but you can eat it warm or room temperature too!

Pumpkin SPice Caramel Sauce! SO SO GOOD!

You guys NEED this!

Also check out some of my friend’s posts today using Challenge Butter…they sound SO good!

Pumpkin Spice Caramel Sauce

  • Author: Cookies & Cups
  • Yield Yield: 1 1/3 cups 1x



  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream, room temperature
  • 4 Tbsp salted butter, room temperature (I used Challenge Butter)
  • 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat sugar and water until it comes to a boil, stirring gently only once or twice. Once mixture comes to a boil, do not stir again. *Tip ~ if you notice a lot of sugar crystals forming on the sides of the pan, wet a pastry brush and wipe down the sides carefully. Allow mixture to boil for 6-7 minutes until mixture is a golden brown and remove from heat.
  2. Immediately whisk in heavy cream slowly. Add in butter and pumpkin pie spice until combined.
  3. Serve warm, room temperature or cool. Mixture will thicken as it cools.
  4. Store airtight in refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Wow, this looks so fantastic! I love caramel sauce, but laced with pumpkin pie spice?! That’s just brilliant! 🙂

Okay, first of all, who is yawning with boredom about pumpkin? Or caramel? I think nobody. Not that my vote counts for much, but I’m happy to see pumpkin recipes continue AT LEAST through Thanksgiving 🙂 Please, please? This looks so divine. I love the idea of adding it to coffee! I want to fly with the angels, please.

Oh wow, I would totally drink this with a straw! How amazing, would it be wrong to pour it all over my cereal too? Nothing like a sugar high to start the day!

Nov 12, 2014 2:56 am

Wow, this looks good enough to eat by the spoonfuls!

Okay yes! This does look and sound yums. But, I have to say, the fact that you still have your hair after writing this post three times AND I found out somebody besides myself uses “Grease-esque” words, amazes me! Thanks for another sweet recipe and hope you’re having a great time in Florida!
