English Toffee Sauce (Easy 15-Minute Dessert Sauce!)
English toffee sauce is delightfully rich and delicious with a warm, caramelized flavor that tastes fabulous on all your favorite sweets and treats! Making your own homemade toffee sauce from scratch is surprisingly easy and only takes 15 minutes!
Measure your sauce ingredients (butter, light brown sugar, heavy cream, corn syrup, and salt - reserve the vanilla) into a large saucepan, heat over medium-high, and bring to a low boil. While heating you should stir only occasionally to help dissolve the brown sugar and to prevent any burning.
1 ½ cups butter, 3 cups light brown sugar, ⅔ cup heavy cream, ¼ cup light corn syrup, ½ teaspoon salt
Once your toffee sauce reaches a boil, reduce heat to maintain a low rolling boil for 3-4 minutes, or until thickened.
When the sauce reaches a good thickened consistency that clings to your spoon, remove it from the heat. Stir in your vanilla (or bourbon) and allow the toffee sauce to cool slightly before serving.
