Cara Cara Orange Rum Caramel Sauce

Course Dessert


  • 1/2 cup Cara Cara orange juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cara Cara orange zest


  • Add the Cara Cara orange juice, brown sugar, corn syrup, and rum to a medium saucepan over a medium setting.
  • Swirl the pot gently every few seconds as the mixture begins to warm and the sugar dissolves.
  • Continue to swirl the pot as the sauce simmers. Cook for about 5 to 10 minutes until the mixture deepens in color to a deep golden, and you can smell a toasty aroma.
  • Remove the sauce from the heat, and stir in the cream and butter quickly until fully incorporated.
