Whiskey Caramel Sauce:
adapted from THIS recipe.
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 Tablespoon golden syrup (or corn syrup)
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2/3 cup heavy cream
1 ounce whiskey
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a medium saucepan combine the sugar, water, and golden syrup, gently combine. Heat over medium-high until the mixture becomes a syrup and comes to a boil. Continue to boil until the syrup becomes a deep golden, brown caramel color–as dark as you dare before it burns. Remove from heat and quickly whisk in the butter, cream, and salt, until smooth. Return to heat if needed to create a smooth sauce. Whisk in the whiskey to combine. Pour into a heatproof jar and cool. Can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for a week.
