Vanilla Floats with Fireball Whiskey Caramel Sauce

Ice Cream Floats with Fireball Whiskey Caramel SauceShe’s not a little girl anymore – which I reminded myself when she returned home from a party effusively sharing all the redeeming qualities of a new whiskey she had tasted.  “Mom, you have to taste Fireball Whiskey.”  My initial reaction was a little pang in my heart.  My little girl has grown up.  She’s legal now and it is perfectly normal that she would want to imbibe spirits at a party.  My second reaction was – ew, that sounds disgusting!  She insisted I had to give it a try, so off to the liquor store we went.  I must admit, she had peaked my curiosity.  I wasn’t the biggest fan of Fireball Jawbreakers when I was a little girl and I am a purest when it comes to my whiskey preferences, but with one sip I was a fan.  Of course, being a baker and all, the first thing that crossed my mind was how I could use it in a recipe.  J and I tossed ideas back and forth and finally settled on Fireball Whiskey Caramel Sauce.
Ice Cream Floats with Fireball Whiskey Caramel SauceWith Fireballs being all bright red and spicy; and with Valentine’s Day a few days away, I devised  an ice cream float for all my favorite Valentines out there – and that means you!  The caramel sauce it crazy simple to make; no thermometers, or washing down the side of the saucepan with water.  I promise you that once you make this sauce you will want to keep a jar of it in your refrigerator at all times – with or without the whiskey.
