This Pecan Praline Sauce is so easy to make and tastes amazing! (It’s made in the Microwave.) The Praline Sauce is perfect as a topping on cheesecake, ice cream, yogurt. The best part is you can dress it up with a mason jar, a bit of ribbon and a tag for the perfect quick gift.
We had our meet the teacher night last night, and everyone is very excited for the new school year to start!(Though I am not looking forward to the early morning routine, we definitely need to work on our organization and timely-ness. It was easy with just one child, but I think my little girl is about to make it 3 times harder…)
I put together this quick Microwave Pecan Praline Sauce for teacher gifts. The sauce is so yummy, makes a perfect topping over vanilla ice cream and cheesecake. This stuff is amazing!!! I couldn’t wait, and had a scoop of ice cream with the sauce as soon as it was done! It is very rich and delicious, just like a pecan praline. (Creamy pecan pralines are my very favorite candy.)
Looks good, doesn’t it? Makes a fabulous gift for anybody, anytime!
