This is fantastic -
makes about 4 cups:
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1/2 pound of unsalted butter
1/2 tsp of lemon zest
1/2 tsp of orange zest
3 tablespoons of heavy cream
1 pound of pecans
Melt the butter and sugar together along with the two zests. Turn up the heat and boil for 3-4 minutes. Off the heat, mix in the cream and pecans. Store in an airtight container.
Wouldn't the zests get rather overwhelmed in all that butter, sugar, and cream? Looks more like a cake frosting recipe to me!
Butter sugar and cream are not good for you. Try a small dish of low fat yogurt instead. It's easier and more healthy.

NO! Are you sure?
I dont like zest.
The zest adds just a little lightness and floral hint to it.
It sounds like a good basic caramel pecan sauce. I'm sure the zest adds flavor but it's optional.
I eat shit.
Another great topping:
Hersey's chocolate syrup out of a squeeze bottle.
Heavy cream is expensive -- would half & half work?
Serve with a Novolog Flexpen
If you don't like zest, use a little salt. Caramel is usually too sweet, and either one will cut it.
R3, yogurt tastes awful. It dries white on the spoon unless you lick it off the spoon very aggressively. It's a really icky food, seriously.
Sounds great and worth the effort I'm sure. You are the devil, OP.

You're still eating dairy products? Do you WANT to be fat?
Growing up, we'd pour a can of fruit cocktail over our ice cream.
The fat and the dairy are fine, but the sugar... the sugar... That stuff is poison. There are many ways around it that still taste good.
