Lick My Spoon Caramel Sauces | Treatsie.comWe’ve had caramel sauce on the brain and figured what better way to continue featuring this delectable treat than with a list of recipes that will help incorporate it into your everyday cooking. As I’ve learned with this recent spare rib recipe, caramel sauce can be quite versatile.

Many of these recipes below can easily be adapted by substituting a Treatsie favorite: Lick My Spoon Caramel Sauce, which comes in a variety of flavors and is sure to please!
1. Emeril’s Warm Peach Pancakes with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and a Drizzle of Warm Caramel Sauce

Hey, Emeril knows his stuff, and this recipe sounds fantastic. Although it’s more of a dessert, it certainly can be served as a breakfast. Just follow the directions precisely and drizzle with some Bourbon Me Bourbon caramel sauce.
2. Grilled Striped Bass with Sweet-and-Savory Caramel

Wait, what!?!  Striped bass? This recipe is from Andrew Zimmern, who I consider an absolute genius in the culinary world and the host of one of my all-time favorite shows, Bizarre Foods. Once again, make things a tad easier and consider using the Orange Ginger caramel sauce, instead of the suggested fish sauce.
3. Apple Ginger Pork Loin with Caramel Sauce

Cooking a big pork loin is easy, fairly inexpensive and just a great way to feed a ton of people.  For this recipe, consider forgoing step #3 and opt for a bit of a kick, this Hot Sriracha Chili caramel sauce. It provides a nice heat that’s certainly evident but isn’t overpowering.
4. Spicy Citrus Caramel Chicken Wings

Hey, looking to utilize that Hot Sirarcha Chili caramel sauce in another recipe? Invite your friends over, save some time by skipping steps #3 and #4 and just add some of Lick My Spoon’s sauce as an easy substitution.
5. Sweet Potatoes with Caramel Sauce

Geez, talk about easy! If you’re in a rush and don’t feel like spending a bunch of time on a complicated side dish, just prepare this recipe and drizzle with some Apple Cinnamon caramel sauce as a fun and easy alternative.
6. Banana Cheesecake with Caramel Sauce

I had to give you one classic dessert recipe with caramel sauce.  Just follow the instructions until the very end. Instead of cooking unwrapped caramels with evaporated milk, just drizzle some Espresso or Bourbon Me Bourbon caramel sauce over the finished cheesecake.
