    For all your chocolate whims! Of course it is perfect for ice cream, but consider using it as a sauce over cheesecake or profiteroles ...yum.

    Always a hit with ice cream, cakes, pancakes, waffles....... You catch my drift. Great to use as a drizzle on cakes and excellent with steamed puddings!!!

    Sugar, golden syrup, salt, vanilla extract, double cream and butter, are simmered together to create this delicious caramel sauce. Use as a dip or a pouring sauce over ice cream or cakes.

    I make this easy raspberry coulis recipe with fruit only when in season. If your fruit isn't that ripe or flavourful, you can add the vanilla sugar at the end. Serve this coulis over ice cream, or drizzled over cheesecake. It's also fantastic mixed into drinks.

    This is a really easy sauce to serve over ice cream, cheesecake or perhaps even pancakes. Serve it warm over vanilla ice cream or chill it, and serve over plain cheesecake.

    This is a favourite of ours. Yummy over vanilla ice cream (or any ice cream) - extra nice with sliced bananas on top!

    Coulis are basically very simple fruit purées. Serve with cheesecake, dense chocolate cake, ice cream or other desserts.
