Sweet and nutty, this rich sauce is best served warm over ice cream or frozen yogurt.


  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 12 - ounce can evaporated milk (1-1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup light-color corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  1. In a medium saucepan combine cornstarch and milk; add corn syrup and margarine or butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Stir in brown sugar and vanilla. Cool slightly, about10 minutes, then stir in pecans just before serving.

Make Ahead Tip

  • Cool mixture and store in a covered container in the refrigerator up to 1 week. To serve sauce that has been chilled, reheat in a saucepan over low heat until warm. Or, microwave 1 cup of the mixture in a glass measure on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until warm, stirring once. Stir in nuts just before serving. Makes about 3-1/2 cups (twenty 1/4-cup servings).
