A Quick and Easy Dessert

Because I have just exploded and gotten so fat, I am really trying my best not to eat a lot of desserts. Have you noticed that there haven’t been many desserts on my blog lately? But when people come over for dinner, I feel it is almost an obligation to offer something sweet after we eat. I guess that is just the hostess in me. I guess that part will just never change.

When Elizabeth came over, I needed to make a dessert, but I didn’t want to make too much because we headed out for Hays early the next morning. Ahi Tuna with a Creamy Southwesternย Sauce She had brought over some caramel vodka a while ago and wanted to know what to do with it. So for dessert, I just threw something together real quick and used some of the caramel vodka in the sauce. One of my neighbors had given me a carrot raisin loaf, so I heated that up, added some ice cream and made a caramel sauce, using the caramel vodka as well. It was a win/win. Dessert doesn’t have to be fancy to taste good.

Actually, I had Elizabeth make the sauce.

Caramel Cream Sauce

1 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

4 oz butter

3 TBSP caramel vodka, optional

Mix everything together in a heavy saucepan. Cook on a medium high heat, stirring constantly in a figure 8 pattern. Cook until everything melts completely and the sauce turns a golden caramel color.

When the sauce is done, add the caramel vodka, if using, and mix in thoroughly.

This sauce can be used for any dessert you want to liven up a bit. You can make anything saucy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stay safe and stay well Everyone. Til next time.

  1. I find it hard to say no to sweets. I love pie and making it, but it loves my waistline, sigh. When in the office, I would bring in sweets or pie into the office to spread the calories around. I could have the fun of making something, and the pleasure of getting some, but not having all those calories for just Bruce and me to consume.
