  • 4
    8 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
    1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
    1 2/3 cups Heavy Cream
    Pinch of Salt
    1 tablespoon Dark Rum
    For the Toffee Sauce: In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, brown sugar, 1 cup of the heavy cream, and salt. Cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes or until sugar is completely dissolved and mixture is smooth. Stir in rum and remaining 2/3 cup heavy cream. Mixture will bubble up. 

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Butter and flour the ramekins prior to filling to ensure the pudding slides out with ease.
    2. A variety of toppings make this dessert fun and easy to personalize.
