Caramel Coffee Sauce
1/2 cup sauce
The best sauce in the book! Will bring out the best everywhere you add it and it takes only seconds to prepare.
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons brewed espresso or extra strong drip coffee
1 tablespoon butter
Combine the sugar, cream and coffee in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook, mixing continuously, for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Turn off the heat, add the butter, mix, and set aside to cool.
Tip: The espresso may be bought at a coffee store, if you do not own a machine, and just refrigerate until you are ready to use it.
