This sauce is fantastic! I used Splenda so that that I could use it for Weight Watchers' Core plan. I plan to try it with some cheesecake pudding. I halved the recipe, thinking it would be too much for just me, but I definitely could have made the full amount! Thanks for the recipe! Made for Healthy Choices ABC.
