With only 2 ingredients to play with and a 5-minute method, it’s well worth rustling up this Toffee Sauce when you want to give your pudding an extra-special boost of sweetness.
We love this special treat now and again served with a few scoops of ice cream or over a warming, fruit-based dessert like Apple Strudels. To keep the calories lower, we’ve used a combination of melted sugar free chewy toffees and reduced fat cream alternative.
Even with sugar free and reduced fat ingredients, we promise no one will be able to tell the difference. It’s still as deliciously sweet and sticky as you’d expect. Bring on the ice cream!

Do you need any special ingredients to make Toffee Sauce?
We’d recommend using Werther’s Original Sugar Free Creamy Toffees for this recipe – these are the chewy toffee version, rather than the hard butter candies.
For our single cream alternative, we used Elmlea Single Light which contains 45% less fat than dairy cream!

This Toffee Sauce is perfect if you’re following a calorie controlled diet, and fits well with any one of the major diet plans such as Weight Watchers.
As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day. Obviously, if your goal is to lose weight then you might want to adjust these slightly! You can read more about these recommendations on the NHS website.
Put the toffees in a small saucepan with the light single cream alternative. Place over the lowest heat and heat gently, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes or until the toffees have just melted. Don’t simmer or boil but heat slowly and gently.
Remove from the heat and stir to make sure all the toffee has completely melted. Serve warm or pour into a small container, and leave to cool for 10 minutes, before placing in the fridge to chill for a minimum of 30 minutes. Chilling will make the sauce slightly thicker. Serve with a dessert of your choice.
