  • ½ cup Butter salted
  • 1 cup Sugar white granulated
  • ½ cup Corn Syrup
  • ½ cup Buttermilk Cultured
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla


  • In a large saucepan, (use a large one because the mixture is going to more than double.) on medium heat, combine the butter, buttermilk, sugar, and corn syrup. Bring the mixture to a rapid boil. Boil for 2-3 minutes or just until the mixture starts to turn a caramelly brown color. 
  • Stir in the baking soda and vanilla and stir until combined.  Take the syrup off the heat and let it cool for 5 minutes before serving.  
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
