Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, but fireball whiskey gives it the unique cinnamon kick. If using another whiskey, consider adding cinnamon extract for flavor.
While some of the alcohol from the whiskey may cook off, a good portion remains in the final product. However, given that the whiskey is just one component among several ingredients, the overall alcohol content in any serving of the sauce is minimal. So, while you’ll still get that delightful whiskey flavor, it’s present in a very controlled and modest quantity in the larger context of the sauce.
If you would rather make this non-alcoholic, you can omit the whiskey. Consider adding a little more cinnamon extract or the recommended red hot candies for that extra zing.
The sauce has a mild cinnamon kick but isn’t overly spicy. Adjust to your preference with red hot candies.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

We do not recommend freezing caramel sauce, as it does not freeze well and will granulate.
