  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Total Time 25 min
  • Makes: 1 cup (250 mL)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar 375 mL
  • 1/4 cup brewed coffee such as Sensations by Compliments Colombia Cartagena Medium Roast (brew stronger than package directions) 60 mL
  • 1/4 cup 35% whipping cream, room temperature 60 mL
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature 30 mL
  • 1/4 tsp salt 1 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Place brown sugar in medium heavy-bottomed saucepan. Pour in coffee and set over medium heat. Cook 12 to 15 min., without stirring, until sugar is fully dissolved and mixture is foamy. Remove from heat; stir in cream, butter and salt. Serve drizzled over desserts such as cakes and ice cream, if desired.

Tip

For easy entertaining, make sauce ahead and reheat before serving. Sauce once cooled completely, can be stored in airtight container in fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Also try drizzling the sauce over whipped cream on desserts, hot chocolate or coffees.

After stirring in salt, mix in 2 tbsp (30 mL) Amaretto or Frangelico liqueur for bold, nutty notes.
