Ingredients

  1. 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) firmly packed brown sugar
  2. 1/4 cup (60 mL) brewed coffee such as Sensations by Compliments Colombia Cartagena Medium Roast (brew stronger than package directions)
  3. 1/4 cup (60 mL) 35% whipping cream, room temperature

  5. 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt

Method


  1. Place brown sugar in medium heavy-bottomed saucepan. Pour in coffee and set over medium heat. Cook 12 to 15 min., without stirring, until sugar is fully dissolved and mixture is foamy. Remove from heat; stir in cream, butter and salt. Serve drizzled over desserts such as cakes and ice cream, if desired.
