Ice Cream Toppings At Home
For a long time, I have been simply squirting Hershey's syrup on my ice cream. I am now looking for something with more (real) chocolate flavor.
Any recommendations for that as well as a caramel topping?
I would melt some dark chocolate and add a little bit of liqueur - my personal choice being Cointreau, but of course the sky is the limit in terms of the flavour you want.
For THE most amazing ice cream topping EVER (and if you don't mind the little bit of extra time it takes) put 175ml double cream, 100gm dark chocolate, 3 tablespoons golden syrup (or use whatever type molasses you can get), and 100gm of chunky peanut butter in a saucepan over a gentle heat and stir until all combined. Pour over ice cream and transport self to heaven :)
Love homemade caramel, fudge, and chocolate sauce! not to mention fresh whipped cream (only slightly sweetened). here are some recipes:

ganache- you can warm it up and it tastes like fudge sauce! http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Chocolat...
just whip whipping cream with some granulated sugar until it is the consistency/sweetness you like. also, you could reduce down some 100% fruit preserves or jelly and use that as a sauce as well! hope this helps!
It's neither chocolate nor caramel, but one of my FAVORITE ice cream toppings is Borden's NONESUCH Mincemeat. Most of the year I eat it on plain vanilla, but around the holidays it goes on eggnog ice cream. It is so good it will curl your toes and roll back your eyes! Love it!
