"This recipe is wonderful especially in the fall. Very rich so there is no need to cut large slices.I have used "nut topping" for ice cream and it is very good. I also found a cinnamon apple limited addition ice cream topping put out by Schmucker's that is fantastic. Also great for kids with braces. It's like having a caramel apple without having to cut it up. Either way you can't go wrong with this recipe."
