I’ve had this butter rum sauce recipe since 2009 which I got from a magazine during a doctor’s appointment. Before the smart phones, when you see a recipe you like from a magazine either you tear the page or write it down. Out of respect for my doctor I wrote down the recipe instead.
I want to give credit to the magazine or author of this recipe but unfortunately I have no clue where I got it from. It is a family favorite. A huge thanks to the author.
This is a decadent and easy sauce to make. Aside from desserts, drizzle this ooey gooey sauce on your favorite fruit or ice cream. Get creative.
If sauce gets too thick just warm it in the microwave for less than 10 seconds. Any left over can be stored in the fridge.
The original recipe was too sweet for me so I made some minor changes and reduced the sugar.
