This Pumpkin Spice Caramel Sauce will become the new mascot for the fall season.
Not sure about you, but just love Caramel apple cider, with LOTS of caramel. It is my to-go to drink during the cooler months.
Anything with caramel is amazing, right? Brownies, cookies, sundaes, cake, apples or even just eating it straight out of the jar.
My baking lately shows that I am all about fall right now being that apples and pumpkin recipes are pumpkin out of my kitchen like there is now tomorrow. In fact, just recently I was making a cake and to make it complete, I wanted to top it with caramel.
And I wanted the caramel to have a more “fall” like taste to it.
It was this cake that inspired this Pumpkin Spice Caramel Sauce, adding a stick of cinnamon and some pumpkin pie spice, this caramel sauce became to die for.
So go on ahead and fall right in to this caramel sauce, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Deliciously creamy caramel sauce with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, making this your new favorite caramel sauce for fall.
- ¼ cup butter, ½ stick
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoon white granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 cinnamon stick
- ½ cup Half-and-half or heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- Pinch of salt
Add all of the ingredients, except for pumpkin pie spice in a medium sauce pan, and heat over medium-low heat.
Let it cook, while constantly whisking it, for about 5-7 minutes. That is until it starts to become thicker.
Turn off heat, and whisk in the pumpkin pie spice, whisk until well combined.
Serve immediately or let it cool, and refrigerate for later.

Kids review: I didn’t tell them I added anything to it and after first bite, they said, “Mom is there pumpkin in here, it is so good!” I was so happy, not sure my little experiment would please their picky palates, but they were licking the bowl clean right along with me.
