This maple caramel sauce is so incredibly easy--only two ingredients! I originally made it to drizzle over smoked pork chops but quickly realized it could also be served over ice cream (or your favorite dessert). It's so buttery-smooth and decadent. Yum!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt together maple syrup and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Stirring with a wooden spoon, cook over medium heat for 10-12 minutes until the sauce thickens to the consistency of a smooth caramel sauce. If necessary, whisk to thoroughly incorporate melted butter.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. As it cools, a thin skin may form on top. Just stir it once more with your wooden spoon before drizzling over your food of choice.
  4. Left-overs can be refrigerated and re-heated for 20-30 seconds in the microwave--that is if you have any. :).
