3. Turn up heat to high and add rum and lemon juice. Either use a lighter to flambé (for you daredevils out there… Seriously though, be careful with this) or allow all the alcohol to burn off (probably the better option).

4. Lower heat back to medium and add brown sugar and nuts. Stir to ensure sugar melts evenly.

5. When the sauce reduces to a caramel-like consistency, remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Serve immediately.
