Salted Caramel Topping
Heat sugar in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Stir constantly with wooden spoon and make sure to scrape the sides and bottom.
Sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a thick brown liquid. Continue to stir constantly.
Once sugar is melted, add in the butter. The caramel will bubble up when you add in the butter, so be careful when adding it.
Stir until butter is completely melted and combined with caramel.
Slowly add the heavy cream. The mixture will bubble up when you add the cream as well.
Boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and add in sea salt.
Drizzle over bars immediately before serving.
