    • Dark Chocolate Fudge Sauce

      This decadently rich sauce -- made with buttermilk, whipping cream, and two types of chocolate -- is great to have on hand anytime you need a tasty ice cream treat. Bonus: We share three ways to change it up with amaretto, espresso, or peanut butter.

    • How to Make Hot Fudge Sauce

      You're five ingredients away from ice cream's favorite topper.

      Made from delicious fresh or frozen cherries, this ice cream topper is bursting with tangy-but-sweet flavor. If you're serving adults, add a dash of fruit liqueur to make it extra indulgent. Vanilla ice cream just got upgraded.

      Mmm...Dreamy Desserts
    • Orange-Praline Sauce

      Enjoy this quick-to-make citrusy sauce on seasonal-flavor gourmet ice cream, or let it be the star on vanilla ice cream. It's also delicious drizzled over cheesecake or brownies. (And shhh!...it starts with purchased caramel sauce.)

    • Hazelnut-Mocha Sauce

      This incredible hazelnut-coffee chocolate sauce makes six half-pint jars -- the perfect amount to gift to ice cream lovers on your shopping list.

    • Blueberry Sauce

      Blueberries work well with their tart buddy, the lemon. One teaspoon of lemon juice is the secret to this simple, fresh ice cream topper.

    • Orange-Ginger Ice Cream Sauce

      Prepare this spiced citrus sauce earlier in the day so when dessert time comes, you just scoop the ice cream, drizzle the sauce, and serve to happy guests.

    • Hard Caramel Sauce

      This classic caramel-like sauce tastes delicious spooned over puddings, cakes, tarts, and more. It begins to harden once it cools, so if you want to keep it a smooth consistency, just stir in a little hot water.

    • Fruited Butterscotch Glaze

      Butterscotch and citrus may not be a pair you've tried before, but you're about to change your tune. Cook them together with sweet brown sugar and tart lemon juice for a topping that hits all the flavor notes.
