  1. 6 tablespoons butter
  2. 1 tablespoon Steen’s cane syrup
  3. 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon firmly packed light brown sugar
  4. ¼ teaspoon salt
  5. 4¼ cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  6. ½ vanilla bean, split lengthwise, seeds scraped and reserved
  7. ¾ cup sugar
  8. ¼ cup water
  9. 1 (.25-ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin
  10. 3 tablespoons amber or dark rum
  11. 6 large egg yolks
  12. Whipped cream, to serve
  13. Toffee-Espresso Sauce, recipe follows
  14. Crispy Oatmeal-Cocoa Nib Cookies, recipe follows
  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter and cane syrup over medium heat. Add brown sugar and salt; cook, stirring often, until mixture comes to a simmer. Whisk in 4 cups cream until caramel has dissolved; remove from heat. Add reserved vanilla bean seeds and bean to cream mixture. Cover and let steep 30 minutes.
  2. In a small, heavy-bottomed,
  3. non-reactive pot, combine sugar and ¼ cup water. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. When mixture reaches a boil, uncover, and cook until mixture caramelizes to a deep amber color, brushing down sides of pot frequently with a pastry brush dipped in water to prevent crystallization, 10 to 15 minutes. Immediately remove from heat and whisk in remaining ¼ cup cream until caramel is dissolved. Whisk this caramel mixture into the first caramel mixture until totally dissolved.
  4. In a small bowl, combine gelatin and rum.
  5. In a medium bowl, place egg yolks. Slowly whisk 1 cup warm caramel mixture into the egg yolks, then slowly whisk egg yolk mixture into remaining warm carmel. Return mixture to the stove, and cook over medium heat until mixture coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat. Whisk gelatin mixture into caramel until totally dissolved.
  6. Fill a large bowl with ice. Set another bowl on top of the ice. Strain cream mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into the bowl and let cool 10 minutes. Spoon mixture into 14 (4-ounce) jelly jars and chill for at least 4 hours. Serve topped with whipped cream, Toffee-Espresso Sauce, and Crispy Oatmeal-Cocoa Nib Cookies.
