  • ¼ cup unsalted butter

  • 2 ½ cups half-and-half

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon dark corn syrup (such as Karo®)

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in 1/2 cup half-and-half, brown sugar, and corn syrup; bring to a boil. Boil, without stirring, until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from water and placed on a flat surface, about 5 minutes. Stir in remaining half-and-half and vanilla extract.

Cook's Note:

You could always buy the fat-free half-and-half to make a much less fattening recipe.
