"This is actually a decent recipe, but the title is really inaccurate. This is more of a caramel peanut butter ice cream topping. My fiance loved this recipe, since he likes caramel and peanut butter, but I was looking for a purely peanut butter sauce. I should have known that there would be a really prevalent caramel taste, with the boiling brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, and salt, so it's probably partially my fault, but I still think the title should be changed."

"don't you mean to reheat 30-60 seconds not 30-60 minutes it would boil over and burn"
