Me: Honey, what do you want for breakfast? I was thinking muffins.

Hubster: Sounds good to me.

Me: What kind do you want? I have apples, bananas, raspberries…{voice trailing off to tackle mound of laundry}

Hubster: I don’t care. Whatever works for you?

Me: Banana muffins then. Banana muffins with rum. Banana muffins with rum and brown sugar. Banana muffins with rum and brown sugar and homemade caramel sauce.

The caramel sauce came together in 10 minutes and I cannot tell you how amazing it is. {That post is coming later this week, but I know for a fact that SprinkleBakes has a great recipe for Caramel Sauce too.} So within the hour, I had warm, ooey-gooey, pop-in-your-mouth Banana Fosters Muffins.
