Really a quick fix topping. Thanks to the recipe can be adjusted as needed. I did make a reduced amount. Served it over brownie ice cream sundaes for an indulgent dessert. Made for Aussie Swap.

Reviewed for April Recipe Swap in the Aus/NZ forum. An easy to make sauce that was terrific on our ice-cream. The only problem we had was not being able to wait long enough for the sauce to cool down . Photo also being posted

Oh yum, oh yum, oh yum! Seven of us gave this amazing sauce a test drive. Don't change a thing -- unless you need to make a double, triple or quadruple batch. That said, if you want to, I suppose you could replace the almond with some other extract flavour. It's nice to have a from-scratch recipe for an item you usually buy ready-made. Thanks very much for posting.
