Freakin' fantastic! That's what my kids said...This recipe is a winner: it's sweet, crunchy, salty (I added a healthy 'dash' as we all love salted caramel here!) and just great. Served on plain ol' vanilla.

We really ohhh-ed and ahhhh-ed over this....decadent is a great descriptive for the sauce. I had a little trouble, but I'm sure it was 'operator error'. ;-) When adding the milk, I had a devil of a time mixing everything together into a cohesive sauce. I put the saute pan back on the cooktop, on low, and stirred until it all combined. The flavor was out of this world. And praline is right; when drizzling this over cold ice cream, some of it hardens into an almost crunchy praline. :) Thanks for sharing, Bayhill! I can't wait to share with my friends...I know they'll be impressed.
