Serve this over chocolate, peach, rum raisin or French Vanilla Ice Cream! You can substitute toasted almonds or pecans for the walnuts. Enjoy!

Top Review by jaybee chef

This was simple to make and absolutely delicious, not as sweet or as strong in cinnamon as I expected. I made it to serve over New York cheesecake and vanilla ice cream, using pecans rather than walnut due to allergy to walnuts in a member of the family. It got rave reviews and recipe requests. I made ahead of time and then just warmed in the microwave, on 40% power, prior to serving. Sometime I think I'll try using the Splenda brown sugar product. or a mixture with brown sugar, to see how that works, just to moderate the high sugar content.
