Mackintosh Sauce

Reader beware, you’re in for a………….. SCARILY DELECTABLE SAUCE.

Seriously, people this is a whiskey caramel sauce, now try and keep your hands off it. The name comes from my sister saying that it tastes like Mackintosh toffees and, well, it does. It’s pretty simple, too, and it was like choc-wizz but toffee flavoured.

Whiskey Caramel Sauce (Based on this from Always with butter)

1 Cup water

2 Cup sugar

1 Cup cream

1 large-ish knob of butter

1 splash of whiskey

Place water in a medium saucepan. Carefully pour sugar into the centre. Cook over a low heat without stirring until the sugar has dissolved. When all sugar has dissolved, turn up the heat and cook for 20-30 minutes until a golden brown colour is achieved. Then add cream a little at a time cos it goes whoosh, fizz, bubble but stand your ground it will be ok! Whisk while adding the cream, then add butter and whiskey. Do let the sauce cool for a while before eating, sugar is very, very hot.
