4 Stars, very tasty, but more liquid than I expected, would plan to serve it next time on top of vanilla ice cream, custard, or cream as suggested by Wikipedia, or atop pound cake, waffles,or a bowl of Cheerios cereal, or how about a sweet pizza crust topped with shredded cheese, then topped with this dessert topping? Syd says 1 teaspoon of vanilla is needed; he will correct recipe. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
