Deeelicious! I made this to top a Sticky Toffee Pudding that I'm giving to a friend. I goofed on the STP recipe and chose one that uses powdered sugar instead of brown sugar. I'm counting on this yummy sauce to add the richness and the sweetness that I love about STP. I poured about 1 cup over the finished pudding and stuck it under the broiler for a minute or so, and I'll include the rest of the sauce in my gift for spooning on at serving time. JenPo is right - this would be the best thing to happen to vanilla ice cream! Yum!! Thanks, Tigerlily and Nigella!

This is the best thing that ever happened to ice cream, I think. I halved the recipe for 2 of us. I would have eaten even more (probably made myself ill on it) had we not run out.
