    To caramelize the sugar, just add it to the pan with the salt. No water is needed. Heat the pan over medium heat. Watch and stir. The sugar will liquefy and as it continues to cook will start to brown. Here's the original recipe I used with pics:

    Sugar, whole milk, heavy cream, salt? I also saw a recipe for peanut butter chocolate cupcakes w/almost 300 cals, 11 fat grams and 44.5 grams of sugar EACH. I'm now using Sparkpeople again. They used to have healthy recipes. I can find unhealthy recipes anywhere else on the web. What happened? - 2/5/15

    This isn't a very healthy recipe but a lot of people here at SP are maintaining or not interested in weight loss. Moderation is the key with recipes like this! - 4/17/15
