Personal Notes:
Caramel and butterscotch sauces were Dad's ice cream toppings of choice. He would always include maple bars in his bakery purchases and preferred homemade penuche over chocolate fudge. Mom's caramel dumplings were one of his favorite desserts. She served them warm, and they were yummy!
