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.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Super quick to make and we have to say this is one of the best butter pecan caramels we've ever had. One bite and you'll skip picking up toppings from the store. The recipe made about 2 cups and the extra stores well in the fridge. It thickens up a bit in the fridge but is still spoonable. Use it slightly warmed or cold. Either way, it is a complete success!
