Chocolate bark is one of my favorite last-minute holiday recipes. I’ll often use up all the random bits of chocolate I have left from my holiday baking, swirling them into pretty (and pretty delicious) slabs of chocolatey delight.

Not to mention the endless possibilities of flavors and toppings… from peanut butter to creme de menthe, freeze-dried fruit to crunchy cookie bits. And now this one, featuring grassy matcha swirled with sultry white chocolate and a base of dark chocolate to offset the sweetness.

I actually first started testing this recipe last year, but I wasn’t completely happy with the appearance of it (turns out rainbow sprinkles aren’t always the best choice), and seeing as it was practically Christmas already, I ended up tabling the idea for this year instead.

Rich and creamy, sweet and boozy – this whiskey-infused caramel sauce makes a perfect homemade holiday gift!

The boozy secret ingredient in this luscious homemade caramel sauce will garner praise and awe from all those who taste it.

Three jars of homemade whiskey caramel sauce, one jar mostly empty with a few drips, and printed black and white labels.

My mom regularly makes double batches of my whiskey caramel sauce to accompany my chocolate whiskey bundt cake recipe, claiming that the sauce itself (not the cake, mind you) always gets tons of raves and compliments whenever she makes it and she likes to have extra on hand to send home with her dinner guests.

Which got me thinking that maybe this recipe, simple as it may be, deserved its own post.

A spoon drizzling homemade whiskey caramel sauce into a jar full of caramel

Whether you drizzle it on a moist chocolate bundt cake or over homemade vanilla bean ice cream, slather it on yeasted Belgian waffles or boozy French toast, swirl it into fudgy pecan brownies or spoon it on top of a slice of New York-style cheesecake… this spiked caramel sauce is not only incredibly versatile, it’s a revelation.

Bonus that it makes a great homemade holiday gift too (and be sure to scroll to the bottom to download my free printable gift labels!)
