Don’t even think you have tasted the best thing ever if you have never had bourbon salted caramel sauce. I am not even a bourbon fan, and then I tasted this. To describe it would be to say imagine if butter, bourbon and caramel all went on a 3 week vacation, and met a sprinkle of salt. Yep, that is how it tastes. I have not ever been on a 3 week vacation, but I can only imagine it is about as good as this!
Okay, let’s get serious. Just for a minute. This sauce is so good, you can put it on just about anything. Bruce created it to get drizzled over these BOURBON PECAN CHOCOLATE CHIP BLONDIES, and wow, was that a good idea! Of course, we had to top the blondies with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream first. Then we warmed the sauce, and drizzled it over the whole thing. No regrets.
