This salted caramel beer float is super simple to make with only four ingredients (and when those ingredients include beer, ice cream and salted caramel, who are we to argue?). Make this for your Super Bowl party and your guests will be all kinds of impressed!

Drizzle some caramel sauce around the inside of a large glass or jar and sprinkle on a small pinch of sea salt. Don’t go overboard with the salt — you want to use just enough to bring out the flavor of the caramel.

Add two scoops of vanilla ice cream. It’s worth using a good quality ice cream here. When you’re only using four ingredients, you may as well make them count!
