Here is a recipe from one of my favorite professional publications, catersource. I haven’t tried this yet, but I am planning on trying it out this weekend since I have some free time. It just sounds too good to resist. I would also be interested in hearing how it turns out for any of you! (The one thing that I might add is some fresh cracked black pepper, about 1/2 tsp, but I love a touch of savory spice with my sweets)
Havarti with Whiskey Caramel Sauce
3 or 4 lb block of Havarti cheese at room temperature
3 cups brown sugar
2 Tbsp white corn syrup
3/4 to 1 cup half-and-half
2 cups walnut pieces
2 Tbsp whiskey
Put sugar, corn syrup, cream and nuts into a heavy saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally. Cook to soft boil stage. Remove from heat and add whiskey. Stir until cool to the touch.
Pour over the block of Havarti. Occasionally the sauce will puddle around the base of the cheese; spoon it over the top again.
Serve with water crackers or gingersnaps.
