You will need:
1 cup (180 g) light or dark brown sugar2 tbs (30 ml) water
6 tbs (90 ml) butter
1/2 tbs (6 ml) salt
1/2 tbs (6 ml) cider vinegar
3/4 cup (180 ml) heavy cream, divided
1/2 tbs (6 ml) rum extract
Four 12-ounce bottles cream soda (I bought a 2 liter bottle and measured out 12 ounces)
In a small saucepan over medium, combine the brown sugar and water. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240 degrees F (115 degrees C) on a candy thermometer.
|back left: cider back right: butter|
front left: heavy cream front right: salt
Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the rum extract.
Use an electric mixer to beat until just thickened, but not completely whipped, about 2 to 3 minutes.
To serve, divide the brown sugar mixture between 4 tall glasses (about 1/4 cup for each glass).
Then fill each glass nearly to the top with additional cream soda, then spoon the whipped topping over each.
(The colder it is the foamier is will be. If, after adding the soda, the beverage is room temperature add ice or chill before adding the foam.)
Ohh that looks tasty! Must see if I can find the time to whip some up.ReplyDelete
It is really really good. My taste tester (husband) thinks it tastes like a Werther's Original candy. The kind that are caramel flavored. I think it tastes like butterscotch. Either way, very good.ReplyDelete
Now if I could only make this in my dorm...ReplyDelete
Haha! No I am not encouraging dorm cooking but a microwave or a hot plate might work. You didn't hear that from me:)ReplyDelete
Bahaha. Well we actually are allowed microwaves, and they do come equipped with them. Cooking is one thing I miss when I am there though. Keep up the good work!ReplyDelete
