It’s recipes like this one that make me wish I had a special blogging tool to help you smell it and taste it, because it is out-of-this-world good!  It honestly tastes just like a cinnamon roll, and is incredible on pancakes, waffles, and French toast. It’s a really fun alternative to maple syrup, and perfect for fall! For something even more decadent, try it over vanilla ice cream!!!

You know what makes it even better? It’s not a complicated recipe that takes forever to make…we’re talking less than 5 minutes, and in the microwave!  Plus, it uses ingredients that are most likely already in your pantry, so you can probably throw it together anytime you like. Having guests and want something a little extra special?  Make this sauce, and they will love you more than they already do. It’s perfect for any special occasion, or any day at all!

 I like to double it, and keep any leftovers (and that doesn’t always happen) in the fridge in a mason jar. It will keep for a few days, and it’s also yummy with sliced apples.

You are going to LOVE it!

  12. LOVED THIS! I tried is this weekend on FRENCH TOAST and it blew us away. goodbye syrup, hello decadent cinnamon roll sauce!

  13. My husband loves anything with cinnamon. He’s going to absolutely love this!! Thanks for the recipe!!

  14. first of all my apologies if I am being thick but can you please tell me what “half and half” is in this recipe. i would love to try this cause both my husband and myself love cinnamon. thanks in advance.

    1. Oh, sure!! I’m sorry, I noticed that you have an email address in the UK, and half-and-half must be an American thing. It’s actually half cream and half milk, so it has a higher fat content. You could absolutely use heavy cream instead, and it would be even richer and creamier! You could also use whole milk, but it wouldn’t be quite as creamy. Either way, it’s going to be yummy!!!

          1. will do got some free time coming up next week so will be making a few pots of it then ( and hiding it somewhere it just sounds so scrummy )xx
