Guys, I am making ice cream toppings, again. I love ice cream.  I will pretty much inhale any kind of ice cream put in front of me. Splash a tasty sauce on top and I’m totally hooked. Chocolate, caramel…I love it all. And I am really partial to this strawberry version. Totally simple, extremely basic…and that is truly what I love about it. This sauce is perfect over vanilla, strawberry, or chocolate ice cream…but it’s also positively delish over angel food cake, pancakes or just plain toast.
