    Really a quick fix topping. Thanks to the recipe can be adjusted as needed. I did make a reduced amount. Served it over brownie ice cream sundaes for an indulgent dessert. Made for Aussie Swap.

    Reviewed for April Recipe Swap in the Aus/NZ forum. An easy to make sauce that was terrific on our ice-cream. The only problem we had was not being able to wait long enough for the sauce to cool down . Photo also being posted

    Oh yum, oh yum, oh yum! Seven of us gave this amazing sauce a test drive. Don't change a thing -- unless you need to make a double, triple or quadruple batch. That said, if you want to, I suppose you could replace the almond with some other extract flavour. It's nice to have a from-scratch recipe for an item you usually buy ready-made. Thanks very much for posting.


I am blessed with a wonderful dh and four fantastic, crazy children. I am a stay at home mom who works from son up till son down. My favorite cookbook is not one that I cook with very often, it actually sits on top of my pantry propped up in an old basket. The cookbook was given to my grandmother just prior to her marriage to my grandfather and it has the family prayer and some recipes that my great-grandmother penned in her own hand inside. It is called All About Home Baking. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src="">
