A topping that hardens as it hits the cold ice cream

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Absolutely great sauce! I never thought much about a sauce that gets brittle when poured over cold ice cream, but that's pretty much like the ol' Dairy Queen cones! Only this sauce tastes so much better, I think! A very nice treat, & thanks for sharing the recipe!Made this especially for my vegetarian son & DIL & it was a big hit with all of us!
