I am super lucky that my husband and I live on the same page, but every now and again we disagree about something. One of those rare things is Maple. My Husband is “meh” about maple, whereas my blood is probably 20% maple syrup.
I love maple. All things maple. If I could live in Vermont next to a maple tree, I’d be a happy woman. So you can imagine that I turn to mush around this Salted Maple Caramel Sauce.
I could eat it by the bucket-full. With a spoon.
It’s all the things I love about salted caramel but made with maple syrup and 400x easier. It’s creamy, smooth and silky. It has a rich, concentrated maple flavor with a buttery finish.
While we’re chatting, I’ll tell you another thing my husband and I disagree about.
His new beard. As in when is he going to shave it off? Yesterday would have been great for me, but apparently my vote doesn’t carry the weight it should. I’ll have to remind him that, as a woman, I get two votes automatically.
Back to things I understand, like Salted Maple Caramel Sauce!
You can use this sauce just like you would caramel sauce: on ice cream, on fruit, on crumbles, as a filling for cupcakes, or, my personal favorite, in these Maple Caramel Pecan Bars!
This particular batch was a thinner sauce, but you can easily make it thicker by cooking the maple syrup longer.
