Pecan Pie Caramel Sauce is a rich, buttery, silky smooth sauce that’s filled with pecans. It’s simple to make and lovely poured over anything.
I may be a little obsessed with the flavors in pecan pie. One of the most popular recipes on my site is my Pecan Pie Bread Pudding. Classic bread pudding is filled with a pecan pie center. It’s amazing!
Then, I share my Granny’s Classic Southern Pecan Pie recipe. It’s a classic favorite for a reason. Part of the popularity is it is easy to make with a gooey center topped with crunchy pecans. This makes a great combo!
As well, Pecan Cobbler is another very popular recipe on my site. For example, this cobbler has that wonderful caramel syrup and pecans but with a classic cobbler crust. Unbeatable!
When I was dreaming up this Pecan Pie Caramel Sauce, I dreamed of pouring it over vanilla ice cream. After I made it I realized it would be great served on pancakes, waffles, bread pudding, or pound cakes.

Pecan Pie Caramel Sauce Tips
- To save money I used pecan pieces. They’re significantly cheaper than pecan halves.
- Furthermore, I used granulated sugar, but you can use light or dark brown sugar as well.
- Most importantly, when cooking this sauce, the pecans fall to the bottom. They will stick and burn if you don’t stir the mixture almost constantly.
