Briefly stir together the granulated sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Continue cooking, without stirring, until the mixture turns dark amber in color, about 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and slowly add the butter, cream, and vanilla, stirring with a wooden spoon until completely smooth. Set aside until cool to the touch, about 25 minutes. Combine the caramel, confectioners’ sugar, and salt in a large bowl and mix until completely incorporated and lump free. Cover and refrigerate before using. Reprinted with permission
