Celebrating National popcorn day with this Blanton’s Chocolate & Caramel Sauce

Happy New Year my Bourbon friends!

Here we are with the first post of 2017! I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I have already accomplished one of my goals! Last year I struggled (several times) trying to make the perfect bourbon caramel sauce. I made several attempts and my results were it was too watery, I burned the sugar, & I even burned my finger from touching the hot sugar (still don’t have a lot of feeling on the finger).

I saw that today was national popcorn day, and what goes great with popcorn? You guessed it caramel & chocolate. So I became more determined than ever that 2017 was going to be my year, the year of the bourbon caramel sauce. I practiced all week to try and get this caramel sauce down, and can I just say #NAILEDIT and I didn’t even burn myself this time!

Tonight to celebrate my victory (and #Nationalpopcornday) I popped some popcorn on the stove, added some cashews and drizzled it with both the chocolate & caramel. Making sure to finish it with Bourbon Barrel FoodsBourbon Smoked Sea Salt” YUM!!!!

I am so excited to share with you my Blanton’s Caramel Sauce, along with my Blanton’s Chocolate Sauce. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. Just remember don’t limit yourself to just putting it on popcorn, get that chocolate & caramel on your favorite sweet treats.

  7. Melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally.
  8. Once the chocolate has melted add in the butter, stir and allow to fully melt. Add in the cashew milk and slurry, stir to combine and allow to cook for 5mins.
