what you'll need

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 stick
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or scotch whiskey

let's do it

  • Place a medium-sized, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat and add the butter. When the butter is melted, add the brown sugar, heavy cream and salt. Whisk until it’s well blended.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and allow the sauce to bubble slowly for 5 minutes. Stir the mixture occasionally to avoid scorching.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract (or scotch), incorporating completely.
  • Transfer the mixture to a glass container with an airtight seal and serve the sauce warm or cold. Enjoy!
