This is so easy to make and a real crowd pleaser. Add a gourmet touch to any dessert by drizzling this over the top.
½ cup salted butter
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar firmly packed
½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons Scotch whiskey
½ teaspoon flaky salt (Maldon is the best)
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and lemon juice and mix.
Bring to a low boil and cook until the sauce is smooth and combined thoroughly. Add the heavy cream and cook another 5 minutes. Keep it at medium to low heat so it low boils.
Take off of the heat and add the whiskey and salt.
Ladle into jars and let it cool completely. It can be kept in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. To reheat, simply put in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring each time. You can also bring it to a gentle warm in a saucepan. Do not allow to boil.
