Salted caramel sauce is simply delicious but add some apple cider, honey and bourbon...well, you've taken it up a bunch of notches. Try this one next time you're looking for those autumnal flavors!
Salted Caramel Sauce
Makes: 2 cups
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey (or corn syrup)
1/4 cup bourbon + 1/4 cup apple cider (or 1/2 cup cider)
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp kosher salt + flakey salt for sprinkling
Place sugar, honey, bourbon and apple cider in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, without stirring for 9 minutes or until light golden in color.
Add the heavy cream, butter and vanilla, slowly stirring into pan. Boil for 15-20 minutes or until a candy thermometer reads 220°, stirring frequently. Remove the sauce from heat and add the salt.
Using a heat-proof measuring cup, scoop out 1 cup of caramel sauce and allow it to cool. Cover the remaining sauce and set aside until the cake is ready (I just covered my pot and set it aside overnight).
