Bourbon Caramel Sauce

Bourbon Caramel Sauce

This silky sauce, which earned our Test Kitchens' top rating, capitalizes on bourbon's oaky spirit. It's delicious over low-fat vanilla ice cream, pound cake, or bread pudding. Cover the surface of any leftovers with plastic wrap (to prevent a skin from forming).

  • Yield: 1 1/3 cups (serving size: about 1 tablespoon)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons light-colored corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup evaporated low-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup fat-free half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons bourbon

Preparation

Sprinkle sugar in an even layer in a large, heavy saucepan. Combine 2/3 cup water and syrup; pour over sugar. Cook over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves (about 4 minutes), stirring gently. Cook an additional 20 minutes or until golden (do not stir). Remove from heat. Gradually stir in milk, half-and-half, and butter using a long-handled wooden spoon (mixture will bubble vigorously). Cook over low heat until mixture is smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in bourbon. Serve warm. (Mixture thickens as it cools.)
