- 125 ml honey
- 150 g brown sugar
- 110 g butter
- 1 x 397 g can of condensed milk
- 1 x 220 g pack of shortbread biscuits
- 6 ripe figs
Place the honey, sugar and butter in a saucepan over a medium heat. Allow the butter to melt and mix with the honey and sugar.
Bring the mixture to a brisk simmer, stirring continually. Allow the mixture to bubble for 1 to 2 minutes, then stir in the condensed milk.
Continue mixing until the mixture is pale caramel in colour, begins to thicken and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
Serve with the Woolworths shortbread and figs.
TASTE's take: This caramel is the best quick-fix dessert for unexpected guests and the best part is that it can be whipped up using everyday basics. I like to serve it with shortbread fingers and figs with strong coffee after dinner.
