- 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
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.
