This recipe only happened because my 11 year old is super crazy for anything that is butter pecan flavor! So one day we decided to make our own sauce, so she could eat it with ice cream whenever she liked!
How do you make Butter Pecan Sauce?
You make it with 6 ingredients!
- brown sugar
- maple syrup
- heavy cream
Next thing you will melt the butter in a pot. Then add the rest of the ingredients, one at a time. Total cooking time is about 10 minutes! So easy!
Does it harden?
Will the sauce harden when you put in over ice cream? Yes and now. I will if it is warm, but if it is cold it won’t.
Most likely your sauce will be warm because when you pull it out of the refrigerator you will need to warm it up to get that creamy consistancy.
How long does it last?
If you want to know how long will this last in the refrigerator I would say up to 2 weeks. We’ve been slowly eating it out of the jar for that long and it still taste so good!
