Caramel Fondue Recipe (2)

Caramel Fondue Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (240 milliliters) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) rum
  • 240 milliliters (1 cup) milk, warmed
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 60 milliliters (1/4 cup) boiling water
  • 2.5 milliliters (1/2 teaspoon) pure vanilla extract

How to Make Caramel Fondue:

In a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat, melt sugar for 5 to 10 minutes, occasionally stirring at first, then constantly, until sugar is completely liquefied and browned. Use a wet pastry brush to remove any sugar crystals that form at the edge of sugar water during cooking.

Meanwhile, whisk together cornstarch and rum in a small bowl until a slurry forms.

In the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, combine the milk, egg yolks, and cornstarch-rum mixture.

Cook, constantly stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes or until a smooth sauce forms.

When the sugar has caramelized, remove the skillet from the heat.

Carefully stir in boiling water. (Mixture will bubble and spatter.)

Immediately pour caramel into a warm milk mixture on top of a double boiler.

Caramel will solidify again, but keep stirring over low heat for about 20 minutes until melted.

Remove the double boiler from the heat and add in vanilla.

Transfer immediately to the dessert fondue pot over a flame.

Spear a piece of fruit, cake, or whatever food you’ve chosen with a fondue fork or tines of a fork and dip in fondue.

Presentation Tip:

Before serving, drizzle up to two cups of heavy whipping cream on top of the caramel sauce and lightly swirl with a fork or skewer to create a beautiful design.

You can also sprinkle with a pinch of flake sea salt for that true salted caramel best experience.
