Peanut Butter Sauce Topping #Recipe

Last Updated on February 16, 2020 by

When I was a kid living in Connecticut, my all time favorite restaurant to eat at was Friendly’s diner. Yup, I had fancy tastes back then. After my standard dinner of grilled cheese and french fries I always got an ice cream sundae with peanut butter sauce topping. It was an absolutely perfect ending to my meal and even now when I go back home I love to stop at Friendly’s and get peanut butter sauce topping drizzled over several scoops of vanilla ice cream. So, I got to thinking, why do I have to wait until I get within driving distance of Friendly’s before enjoying my favorite sundae?
