Recipe Comments & Reviews

Best, easy to make. Great for gifts.
The best caramel dressing recipe.
So quick, so easy! Yummy on ice cream, apples, pies, angel cake, bread pudding, etc. Brought it to family reunion and now everyone is making it for Christmas gifts in 12 oz jelly glasses ~ just takes a bow. It does separate in the fridge but warm it and stir ~ no problem.
I served this on a whipping cream pound cake and got rave
reviews. The cake may be one of your recipes as well. I have
also given the sauce as gifts. Really terrific!
Makes a wonderful dipping sauce for fresh apple slices.
