Bourbon Caramel Sauce Recipe

Bourbon Caramel Sauce Recipe
Perfect for both gift giving and parties, this bourbon caramel sauce will become an instant favorite of anyone who tries it!
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Boil sugar, water, corn syrup, and salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat, swirling occasionally. Cook until caramel is the color of iced tea, about 10 minutes. Watch it closely. It takes awhile to get going, but once it gets going, it can scorch quickly.
  2. Remove from heat and add cream and bourbon (watch out for steam!), whisking to combine. Keep off the heat and whisk in butter and vanilla. Transfer sauce to a bowl to cool (and thicken). Store covered in the fridge and reheat slowly in the microwave or over low heat in a saucepan. Also great cold with apples as a dip.
