Dad likes chocolate ice cream - the darker, the better. Today, for his birthday, I topped chocolate ice cream with a delicious brown sugar sauce and sprinkled on some toffee chips (like the middle of a Heath bar - which I know he likes). It's a simple, yet decadent dessert.
Brown Sugar Sauce
1/4 stick butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Combine all four ingredients in a small saucepan and melt over medium-low heat just until it starts to bubble. Drizzle over ice cream. Enjoy!
In the summer we often use this sauce on grilled pears or pineapple. Just grill half of a pear or a slice of cored pineapple over medium-high heat on the grill until you get nice grill marks. Top with vanilla ice cream, and drizzle with brown sugar sauce. Delicious!
I'd love to hear your ideas for other yummy desserts to drizzle with brown butter sauce.
Happy Birthday Dad!!!
