This Comes from Miss Sandra Lee herself. A great cookbook called Semi-Homemade cooking 3. This also works well with molasses.

I was very disappointed in the flavor of this recipe. It has all the Fall flavors that I love, but the end result is very bland. I made my own hard sauce using Recipe #116105 Aunt Jeannie's Hard Sauce with rum instead of brandy. I doubt I will ever make this again.
