      Great sauce! I made 2 batches. After the first batch, instead of dipping the pot into cold water, I took it off the heat and gently stirred in the other ingredients.

      This 'sauce' is definitely good over cake & ice cream, but we also enjoyed it spread on toasted winter wheat bread ~ REALLY, REALLY NICE! And unusual enough to be included in my cookbook of gift ideas! Thanks for sharing this keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block]
