“This is such a great sauce! Good on ice cream, pound cake, as a glaze, over bananas, just anything! Sauce will keep for a week or longer, in the refrigerator. To serve, warm the sauce and drizzle over the dessert. I have kept it longer than a week, in the fridge, if it lasted that long. I have also used chunky peanut butter. Just use what you have in the pantry.”
