Salted Caramel Sundae -

I’ve been trying to think of different ways to use my salted caramel sauce since I first posted it last month. I mean, it’s so good, and I had made so much of it. I needed to use every last drop.

Theresa and I were at the grocery store a few weeks ago getting stuff to make ourselves dinner for the night when a wonderful thought popped into my head – what about salted caramel turtle sundaes?

Turtle sundaes are by far my favorite kind of sundae, and pecans are my favorite nut so it just made sense that I would want to add my favorite caramel sauce to the mix.

So I ran around the store gathering the needed ingredients. Luckily we already had two jars of hot fudge sauce in the fridge at home. So I grabbed some vanilla ice cream and some pecan pieces, and we headed to the checkout.

The best part about this sundae is that the saltiness of the caramel sauce pairs really well with the pecans. It was like they were perfectly roasted and salted – without being too salty to go with the creamy vanilla ice cream.

  1. Oooh, yum. This looks amazing! I made salted caramel sauce last year for Christmas gifts and had SO much I had no idea what to do with.. and this never crossed my mind! Luckily I have a bit leftover from my apple-cherry galette from Thanksgiving, and I know exactly what I’m going to do with it!

    1. You should definitely use it for a sundae. You won’t be disappointed – I promise. How was Thanksgiving anyway? Did you have a great time?

      1. It was actually great! Everything I made was tasty and there was pretty much no stress! Next year I’m getting those Crockpot buffet thingies, to make it even EASIER, but it was really pretty good! Oh, and I bet some chocolate shell would be amazing on this sundae! I started making it years ago (way easier than chocolate sauce!) and the texture would be interesting paired with the creamier salted caramel sauce. Mmmmm
