Total Time

"The recipe for this sweet, nutty ice cream sauce comes from a famous New Orleans restaurant," reports Cindy Stephenson of Houston, Texas. "When we entertain, I top each pretty parfait with whipped cream and a pecan half."


  • 1 bottle (16 ounces) dark corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 to 4 cups vanilla ice cream


  1. In a saucepan, combine the corn syrup, sugar and water; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in pecans. Cool completely. Spoon half of the ice cream into four parfait glasses or dishes. Top each with 2 tablespoons sauce. Repeat layers. Refrigerate leftover sauce.
