Ingredients Nutrition


  1. be sure to have all ingredients ready from start because as soon as the sugar melts, it is quick to burn so be careful and work fast.
  2. in a heavy bottom sauce pan, on medium/high heat; melt down the cup of sugar, stirring constantly. this might take a while but once it is melted, the sugar will look a bit amber or brownish in color.
  3. then add the butter while still stirring. when you add the butter, the sauce will begin to bubble but it's okay.
  4. then add the 1/2 cup of whipping cream and as you are still stirring, the sauce will start to come together. you can then turn down the heat and serve.
  5. to re-heat the sauce i usually put my sauce in a tupperware container, heat some water in a pan and place the container in the water.
