Why always turn to chocolate when Butterscotch soothes the heart just as softly? If nutty fudge, sticky toffee pudding or chewy salted caramel is high on your sweet tooth list, then why not treat yourself to something a little different this Valentine’s Day and indulge in a warm butterscotch fondue.
What I love about this recipe is that it works particularly well with cakes, donuts and marshmallow as well as fresh fruit. No need to omit the chocolate all together here, the traditionnal dip simply becomes the dipper.
I love holidays that allow me to give into my greed without judgement. Christmas is, of course, the king of all foodie holidays, but valentine’s day is not far behind. And after a long no-sugar, or be good, January, it could not come at a better time.
Whether you’ll be spending this day with a special someone (and, yes, I mean yourself) or in the company of others, this dessert is sure to impress.
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 tbsp (15g) Butter
- 3 tbsp (38g) Light Brown Sugar
- 4 tbsp (80g) Corn Syrup
- 1/4 cup (60ml) Double Cream
- Fresh fruits, sliced
- Brownie bites, Marshmallow or Donut hole
- In a small saucepan, melt the sugar, syrup and butter over medium heat and boil for 5 minutes.
- Take off the heat and add the cream, stirring until all combined.
- Pour into a small bowl, or fondue set, and serve with fresh fruits, such as apples or bananas, and little treats like marshmallow, brownie bites or donut hole.
- The leftover sauce can be stored in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and is delicious on ice cream or in yogurt!
