- New Orleans Mini Beignets
- Homemade Donuts
- Homemade Brownies
- Chocolate Waffles
- Serve over ice cream
- Fresh Fruit (bananas, strawberries, apples, etc)
- Store-bought cookies, wafers, graham crackers
- Drizzle over popcorn

It only takes two ingredients, not including water, and about 5 minutes to make this delicious raspberry sauce. This dipping sauce uses raspberry preserves as a base. You can also use seedless raspberry jam if you prefer. Simply add some vanilla and water, and mix well over low heat. The vanilla and raspberry flavors are incredible together!
How to Make Caramel Sauce
Out of these three sauces, this dipping sauce will take the most time (but it’s still very manageable). However, this is probably my favorite of the three, so it is well worth the effort.
You will need both brown and white sugar to make this sauce, along with several other ingredients. The key with this sauce is to stir the mixture continually until it is smooth. Be patient, you are in for a treat!
