Chocolate Caramel Sauce

Submitted by:
Almost too good for words. This decadent sauce turns to a gooey caramel shell when poured over ice cream ... YUM!!!

Preparation time: 30 min
Cooking time: 20 min

Difficulty: Medium - experience needed
Serves: 8

Dietary guidance: v n g 


1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup water
2 T unsalted butter
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 oz bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate (stay under 61% cacao)
1 T Kahlua or other coffee flavored liqueur
1/2 tsp vanilla extract


Stir brown sugar together with 1/4 cup of water in a heavy to medium saucepan over medium to low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat, and boil without stirring until syrup is deep amber color, occasionally brushing down sides of pot with wet pastry brush, 2 - 4 minutes. Add butter; stir until melted. Gradually stir in cream. Boil sauce 2 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat. Add chocolate, Kahlua, and vanilla; stir until chocolate is melted, and sauce is smooth.

Serve over ice cream with grilled bananas, with brownies, brownie cookies, a little whipped cream, or all by itself :)
