"We wanted a sauce to use on our favorite desserts and our favorite ice cream, but just couldn't find it in any store. So we came up with this recipe to make up for it, and it has become a family favorite! The Bourbon Pecan Pie is the perfect coffee for this sauce, but you could use any flavor that is your favorite. Just make sure you have lots of ice cream, becuase everyone will want some!"


This is a fan-submitted recipe. It was not made in the kitchens of the Door County Coffee Cafe.

  • ¼ cup boiling water
  • 4 Tbls. Butter
