My grand-daughter who is 12, made this sauce for the ice cream last night. I wasn't to sure of how the buttermilk would be in it. It was such a wonderful surprise the taste it had. Luckly, she doubled the recipe because just about everyone went back for more sauce :-) I had made the south Southwest Pasta Bake, and this was suggested as the desert...Both excellent.
