For the Sauce

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½  cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon salt


Make the Sauce

  • In a sauce pan, add sugar and honey. Heat on medium until sugars are melted. Lower heat to a simmer
  • In a small sauce pan, add cream and heat on medium. Do NOT bring it to a boil. Add butter, vanilla, salt and bourbon. Once the butter has melted, take off heat and add cream mixture to sugar mixture.
  • Turn the heat up enough that the sugar mixture bubbles
  • Let the mixture turn to a nice golden color and thicken somewhat. Mine took around 10 minutes
  • Pour into glass jar and let bourbon caramel sauce cool on the counter for 2 hours
  • Pour some bourbon caramel sauce on ice cream
  • Eat
  • Smile
  • Enjoy


I didn't count the two hours it sat on the counter to thicken.
