Tennessee Moonshine, Honey Caramel Sauce

  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 4oz moonshine or other spirit of your choice, or none at all
  • In medium sauce pan, combine butter, sugar and honey.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium low and allow to simmer.
  • Continue to simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally and checking that it does not boil over.
  • Remove from the heat and away from open flames.
  • Add the moonshine. Take care that it does not boil over or splash on you when doing this as boiling sugar will leave a blister.
  • Add vanilla in the same manner and then add the cinnamon stick to flavor caramel while cooling.
  • Enjoy!
  • This recipe will make approximately 3 cups of sauce.
  • Make this recipe your own by experimenting with different spices or spirits.
  • Refrigerate covered for up to two weeks.
  • We serve this on bread pudding, bake on apples with streusel topping, over cheesecake, chocolate cake and anything else that will be still.
  • BE CAREFUL WITH HOT SUGAR MIXTURE!  Last warning, it is tempting to stick your finger in and taste before it is cool, but it is not worth it - trust me.
