Source: I got this recipe close to 30 years ago from a teenager in the church we attended and have used it time and again. Since most of the ingredients are in the pantry, it's one you can pull out when you need a quick dessert. An added bonus is there is minimal cleanup.

This does sound yummy!!
I've been wanting to learn to make this topping for a long time! My friend got the recipe from her MIL, but without the nuts and coconut, but she could never explain to me exactly how long to boil it. It kind of fudges as soon as poured over the cake and possesses a delicate and delicious flavor reminiscent of caramel.
