Whiskey Caramel Sauce

There is only one thing better than caramel sauce in my opinion and that’s Whiskey Caramel Sauce! This sauce is super easy to make but I do advise that you keep a close eye on the caramel while it cooks, as it can go from perfectly caramelized to burnt in a second if you’re not paying attention.

Start by making caramel from water, sugar and corn oil. Simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Whisk in butter until it melts. Then add cream and salt. Depending on your salt preference, you can increase salt by ½ a teaspoon if using unsalted butter and 1 teaspoon if omit the booze and make plain salted caramel instead. This whiskey sauce will keep in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Enjoy!

To make Whiskey Caramel Sauce, you will need the following ingredients:
