  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup milk or cream I used coconut milk
  • 4 tbs unsalted butter
  • dash of salt


  • In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix in well.
  • Bring to a boil, turn down heat to a high simmer, and simmer for 10-20 minutes. Stir occasionally until sauce has thickened and can coat the back of a spoon.
  • Allow to cool slightly and enjoy.


I used a store bought coconut milk (not the full fat version) I did not try this with cream. You may not have to cook it as long if you use cream.
Store in the fridge up to two weeks. Gently heat to soften.
Add 1 tsp pumpkin spice for a delicious fall version.
