Five ingredients, 15 minutes (tops) and you're on your way to buttery, salty-sweet perfection. This recipe, adapted from Smitten Kitchen, is a staple in Anne's fridge. Serve it over ice cream. Top pancakes. Or just grab a spoon. Simple decadence. It's giftable, too!

1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
