Turn off your slow cooker.  Take the cans out with an oven mitten.  You can run them under cold water if you want.

Now we can really get down to business.

  • 1 Tbsp of good coarse sea salt
  • A sprinkle of confectioners sugar to sweeten whipped cream, optional

    This pie looks awesome!
    I’m wondering, do you put water in with the cans in the slow cooker? Or just leave them in there dry the whole time?

    I have yet to try making caramel this way. I have been wanting to for a while. It looks so good. The pie looks even better. Thanks for sharing at Saturday Dishes.
