This rich pecan topping is a saucy version of the traditional Louisiana confection. Add a splash of bourbon if you like. Serve over your favorite frozen yogurt or dip in banana slices.
- 2 teaspoons butter
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans, (1 ounce)
- 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup low-fat milk
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- Pinch of salt
- Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add pecans and stir until the nuts are lightly toasted and fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat; stir in brown sugar.
- Stir milk, cornstarch and salt together in a small cup; whisk into the brown sugar mixture. Return to the heat and whisk until the sauce is simmering and thick, about 1 minute. Serve warm over frozen yogurt.
