Grandma's Old Fashioned Butter Pecan Sundae
Also wonderful served warm over angel food cake, spice cake, apple cake or apple pie- almost anything! Sometimes I'll omit the pecans and add 1/2 tsp. of rum extract and sliced bananas into the pot at the end. So easy with pantry staples, you'll never buy the stuff in a jar again once you try your own homemade.

Super quick to make and I have to say this is THE best Butter Pecan Caramel I've ever had .. I am done with that stuff from the stores! The recipe made about 2 cups and I stored the extra in the fridge. It thickens up a bit in the fridge but is still spoonable. Use it slightly warmed or cold ... either way is a complete success!

- cup brown sugar
- cup light corn syrup
