Sticky and deeply flavorful, this sauce is the perfect ice cream topping.
2. Strawberry Sauce
Fresh strawberries, orange zest, white wine and anise come together in this bright sauce.

This hot fudge sauce is perfect: Rich and shiny, it gets pleasantly chewy when it hits cold ice cream.
4. Classic Crème Anglaise
This deceptively simple sauce makes any dessert more elegant.
5. Salted Caramel Sauce
Perfect on a fruit tart or ice cream sundae, this salty-sweet sauce keeps for two weeks in the fridge.
6. Fresh Blueberry Sauce
This four-ingredient sauce is so easy to make.
7. Chocolate Shell
F&W’s Justin Chapple makes his version of Magic Shell (a sauce that quickly hardens when poured over cold things) with coconut oil to give it additional flavor.

Take sweet-potato pie over the top with this nutty sauce.
