The topping was good but I had to use twice as much butter as listed in the recipe. When I used only 1/4 cup the mixture was very thick with no liquid component. Using 1/2 cup butter worked a lot better. I also was unable to use the topping once cooled because it thickened so much. I had to re-heat it in order to use it.


Had the same issue as the first reviewer. Was this meant to be a crunchy/toffee topping because i expected it to be somewhat a softer sauce. I boiled it on medium heat for at least 3 minutes. More than that, it would've been burnt crispy. I cooled it for a few minutes but when I was ready to use the topping, it was thick, almost hardened. I had to reheat it and added about 1/4 cup of heavy cream.


Wow great topping drizzled on cheesecake. My friends loved it ! No changes made except added 1 T of vanilla.
