I used this recipe from Oprah’s website. The only change I made was the butter. I substituted Earth Balance for the butter and I have to say this recipe rocks. For me, the sauce is more solid at room temperature but as soon as it is heated up it’s perfect for drizzling and enjoying on most things.
Melting the butter and adding the brown sugar.
I don’t have a picture of the final result…but it doesn’t really matter because it is so goood! I’m gonna go sneak a spoonful right now!
Maple Caramel Sauce
Servings: Makes about 3 cups (three 8-ounce jars)
1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2 cups packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup pure maple syrup
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add sugar and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar is completely dissolved, then adjust heat to medium and boil 2 minutes longer. Add maple syrup and boil, stirring frequently, until sauce is thick, smooth, and coats a spoon, 2 to 4 minutes longer. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Pour into heatproof decorative jars and cool completely. Refrigerate in tightly sealed jars for up to 2 months.
