Strawberries with Toffee Sauce


I am into seasonal strawberries right now!  They are so delicious when they're fresh out of the fields, brilliant red all the way through, and practically dripping with sweet juice when you bite into them.

But want to know what makes them even better?  This quick-to-whip-up toffee sauce!  Oh, yes indeed, it does. 

For a really easy, yet impressive and delicious dessert, just slice up some fresh strawberries and drizzle them with a little bit of this rich toffee sauce ... which just so happens to be chock full of tasty little toffee bits.  Top with a dollop of whipped cream or creme freche, and there you have it.  Isn't it pretty?

Don't feel like drizzling?  Oh, then go for the straight dunk!  Mmmm, hmmmm ... dunking whole strawberries was tasty, too.

Either way you dive on into this sauce, trust me ... your tummy will thank you.

Toffee Sauce
Source:  Adapted from my friend Beth


Ingredients
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. whipping cream
1/4 c. light Karo syrup
2 T. butter
1/2 c. crushed Heath Bars or Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits*


Directions
1.  Combine sugar, whipping cream, Karo syrup, and butter in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil, and immediately remove from the heat once it reaches a boil.  Let cool for about 10 minutes.  

2.  Stir in crushed Heath Bars or toffee bits.  

3.  Serve over sliced strawberries, and top with whipped cream or creme freche if desired.

*Note:  Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits can be found in the baking aisle of the grocery store, in the same area as chocolate chips.  Be sure to get the Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits, not the plain toffee bits.  You need the milk chocolate on the bits to melt into the sauce.

Enjoy!
