This is a wonderful caramel/butterscotch type sauce that is wonderful served over a dish of ice cream, sliced bananas, french toast for A Complete Breakfast in Bed for the One You Love, and delicious on a warm slice of fruit pie, especially apple pie! For an adult treat, add a shot of rum when incorporating the pecans. Endless possibilites!
