Whiskey Sauce…as promised.

17 Mar

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2  cups  sugar
  • 2/3  cup  water
  • 1/4  cup  light butter
  • 1/4  cup  Irish whiskey
  • 1/4  cup  1% low-fat milk

Preparation

Combine sugar and water in a small heavy saucepan over medium-high heat; cook until sugar dissolves, stirring constantly. Cook an additional 15 minutes or until golden (do not stir). Remove from heat. Carefully add butter, stirring constantly with a whisk (mixture will be hot and bubble vigorously). Cool slightly, and stir in whiskey and milk.

I filled the cupcakes and drizzled the rest on top. Enjoy! Happy St. Patty’s Day!

Note: Substitute 1 tablespoon imitation rum extract and 3 tablespoons water for the Irish whiskey, if desired.
