Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place a small saucepan over medium heat and melt the butter.
    4 T unsalted butter
  • Add the brown sugar and stir to combine.
    1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • Add the cream and stir until fully combined.
    1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Bring mixture to a low boil/simmer and cook for about 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • Remove from heat and whisk in 3 teaspoons of miso paste and the vanilla.
    Taste and add the last teaspoon of miso if desired (I like mine with 4 teaspoons but it's pretty salty... which is great!) 
    4 t white miso paste, 1 t vanilla extract
  • Serve over ice cream, dip fruit in it, eat it straight, drizzle it on cake... the possibilities are endless.
  • Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge, and reheat before using.
