In This Recipe


  1. Place all of the ingredients, except the whiskey, in a medium pot over low heat. Stir until melted and combined.
  2. Turn the heat up to high and bring the caramel to a boil. Once it is boiling, turn the heat down to medium-high and gently boil for 3 more minutes.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and add the whiskey, stirring constantly, as the liquor will cause the caramel to bubble back up.
  4. Pour into individual jars. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
