For the honey sauce:

  • 2 Tablespoons honey granules, such as Tate and Lyle
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 Tablespoon butter

For the caramel pots de crème:

  • 1/4 Cup water
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 Cups heavy cream
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt


For the honey sauce:

Place honey granules and water to a boil. Mix until the granules dissolve. Add butter and cook for 1-2 minutes. Chill the honey sauce in the fridge until you are ready to use it for your caramel pots de crème.


For the caramel pots de crème:


In a heavy bottomed saucepan, heat the water and sugar on medium heat. Let the mixture come to a boil. Do not mix with a spoon just swirl the pan around occasionally.

Meanwhile, scald the heavy cream — bring it to a boil really quickly and then turn it off.

When water and sugar starts getting a beautiful amber color, remove from heat and add half of the scalded cream. Careful because the mixture will bubble furiously. Whisk and add the rest of the cream until combined

In another bowl, mix the egg yolks. Slowly add about a cup of the mixture into the egg yolks while whisking vigorously to prevent the yolks from cooking. Return the mixture back in the pot. Place pot on the heat and cook on medium heat while whisking constantly until the mixture boils and thickens up.

Divide mixture into glasses or bowl. Place in the fridge to cool until set about 3-4 hours. Add honey sauce over the top and enjoy.



Caramel Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Caramel Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
