Whisky Caramel Sauce
- Active time: 5 min
Total time: 1/2 hr (includes cooling to warm)
Whisky Caramel Sauce is a flavorful accompaniment to ice cream, fruit, or our favorite Bomboloni.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup Scotch whisky
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- Pinch of salt
Cook sugar in a dry 2-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, undisturbed, until it begins to melt.
Continue to cook, stirring occasionally with a fork, until sugar is melted into a deep golden caramel.
Remove from heat and carefully add Scotch, butter, and salt (caramel will steam vigorously and harden). Cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until caramel is dissolved.
Cool sauce to warm.
Sauce can be made 3 days ahead and chilled, covered.
Rewarm over low heat, stirring occasionally, before serving.
