    Chef Kate's Note:

    This heavenly sauce is served over vanilla ice cream at Visko's Restaurant, just south of New Orleans in Gretna. It's dangerously addictive. The recipe is supposed to enough for eight servings---I've seen 4 people make it disappear with no trouble at all. Prep time does not include cooling time.

      I enjoyed this on top of a caramel chocolate swirl ic cream and it was so good! I found the rum was not overpowering.

      This is the perfect replica of a real N'Awlins praline! I made this to go in Praline Iced Coffee and my DD ate it on vanilla ice cream. DELISH!! I will be making this from now on. Thank you-

      Oh so decadent... Rich and thick sauce that tasted just like a melted authentic praline you would find in New Orleans. I did not have any dark rum so I substituted some spiced rum. I made this just to use in Praline Iced Coffee... but I think I am going to have to get some ice cream just to pour this over and indulge!!! Thanks for posting such an easy and delicious dessert sauce!
