Grandmas Oldfashioned Butter Pecan Sundae Recipe @pinch

Super quick to make and we have to say this is one of the best butter pecan caramels we have ever had. One bite and you'll skip picking up toppings from the store. If you are a fan of butter pecan ice cream, the flavors are similar. The sauce is buttery and thick. Almost like a rich caramel with chunks of toasted pecans. Perfect with a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream. 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! This has been our family's favorite ice cream topping for three generations. Rich, creamy, buttery, and nutty... What's not to love? =)Also wonderful served warm over angel food cake, spice cake, apple cake, or apple pie have 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.
