Salted Bourbon Honey Caramel Sauce

Honey Sweetens this Caramel Sauce

Salted Honey Caramel Sauce

Honey is a great sweetener for a caramel sauce and this version can be salted or not. We like the counterpoint of the salt with the extra-sweetness from the honey. The flavor of the sauce will vary depending on the honey you choose to use. Read All About Honey for more information. The bourbon is optional, but adds a great dimension. You do need a candy thermometer. This sauce works well on ice cream, pound cake and we love it as a dipping sauce for our Sweet and Savory Fried Vidalia Onion Rings.

    made the sauce for a Orange Marmalade Monkey Bread,
    that I put together for the family.

    hit a bump in the road when I was putting together the recipe..

    everything was set to go, until I went to add the bourbon:(

    I didn’t even have a tablespoon worth in the bottle.

    had to adapt & improvise.

    since it going to be used mainly with an Orange Marmalade bread,
    I substituted Grand Marnier orange-flavored liqueur.
    I was told it was delicious!!!
