Ice Cream Sundaes with Two Sauces

 Ice Cream Sundae

One scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with warm chocolate sauce

Warm bite size pieces of my Decadent Brownies

Chocolate Sauce

Source:  Lenotre's Desserts and Pastries
9 ounces semi-sweet chocolate 
(I used 9 ounces of Callebaut Milk Chocolate)
1 cup milk
5 teaspoons creme fraiche or heavy cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
Melt chocolate in double boiler.  Bring milk to a boil, add the creme fraiche and bring back to a boil.  Remove the pot from the heat, stir in the sugar, the melted chocolate and the butter.  Replace the pot on the stove and boil the sauce for a few seconds.  Pour into a bowl and cool.


Caramel Sauce with Condensed Milk

I was out of heavy cream and wanted to make a caramel sauce. 
So I used a can of condensed milk to make this sauce.

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup butter
Pinch of salt
1 can condensed milk

Mix Sugar, Maple Syrup, Butter and pinch of salt. Bring to a boil. 
Simmer for two or three minutes. Add  Condensed milk, stirring until
well mixed.  Simmer for 60 seconds.   Remove from heat, add vanilla. 
Pour into bowl or jar with lid and refrigerate.


  1. That's great..I just made a butter brickle for father's day..your caramel sauce would have made the dessert much better.

    1. Monique, will you be sharing your Butter Brickle recipe? Please!


  2. Ann, we would call that luscious thing a banana split!
