What makes the Big Mac a best-selling burger around the world is that infamous special sauce it comes with. 

Without that special sauce, it just wouldn't be special. 

So imagine if you could recreate that very special sauce at home? Home-made burgers would honestly become next level. 

Now, the top-secret recipe for the sauce appears to have leaked online, the Daily Mail reports.

The allegedly authentic ingredients list has circulated on Pinterest and contains a whopping 33 ingredients. 

McDonald's has not responded to questions about the authenticity of the recipe. 

The Special Sauce was first created by franchise owner, Jim Delligatti, who invented the Big Mac in 1968.

A fun fact about the popular burger is that it had two different previous names: The Aristocrat and The Blue Ribbon Burger.

Last year fans of the Big Mac burger were able to buy the sauce to use at home for the first time, but as only a small amount of bottles were made it sold out quick fast. 

Here is the rumoured ingredient list:

Soybean Oil, Pickle Relish (Diced Pickles, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Sugar, Vinegar, Corn Syrup, Salt, Calcium Chloride, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Spice Extractives, Polysorbate 80), Distilled Vinegar, Water, Egg Yolks, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Onion Powder, Mustard Seed, Salt, Spices, Propylene Glycol Alginate, Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Mustard Bran, Sugar, Garlic Powder, Vegetable Protein (Hydrolyzed Corn, Soy and Wheat), Caramel Colour, Extractives of Paprika, Soy Lecithin, Turmeric (Colour), Calcium Disodium EDTA (Protect Flavour)
