Hi Bold Bakers!

This summer I created an entire frozen dessert section on my website for all of you bold bakers who are taking a break from the oven and heading into the freezer section — my freezer section! This page is your one stop destination for all things frozen dessert.

I’ve got you covered from countless ice cream recipes that start with my 2 Ingredient Ice Cream Base to healthy Natural Fruit Popsicles. Basically, if you can dream it, I’ve got a recipe for it. Now, since I feel very strongly that no dessert can really be called complete without the right toppings, garnishes, or decorations, I created an entire video just to show you how to dress up your home made frozen treats with an ice cream sauce — which one you choose is up to you!

Thus, here are all the secrets to the best Chocolate Syrup you’ve ever had, the easiest Raspberry Sauce around, and the richest Butterscotch Sauce you’ve ever tasted! Whether you like chocolate, vanilla or strawberry, I don’t know an ice cream that can’t be improved by topping with an ice cream sauce!

How to Re-heat an Ice Cream Sauce: Chocolate Syrup and Butterscotch

Keep all of your sauces in the fridge until needed. Raspberry Sauce has a shorter shelf life, but the others will last for months happily in the back of your fridge. Before you use the Chocolate Syrup or Butterscotch Sauce, place in the microwave for 30 seconds or until they soften. You can also place the ice cream sauce jar of your choosing in a bowl of hot water and that will soften it and be ready to pour.

Hi Gemma,
For the chocolate sauce, I used the recipe with water and once it was done, it tasted slightly watery. So the next time, I made it with milk and it tastes a lot more richer and delicious. Definitely would use milk instead of water.

Just watched your video & am wanting to make your raspberry sauce. Curious, with the left over raspberries ( what’s left in the strainer), can those be incorporated into a frosting or filling for a cake or be used as a jam? I had just watched your 3 ingredient jam recipe:) I will begin baking the end of next week for my hospital & I thought your Raspberry Jam would be wonderful with biscuits.

Merry Christmas,
Angela
