Warm French Quarter Praline Dip makes an irresistible dessert sauce. Ladle the  wonderful sauce over Praline-Pecan Bread Pudding or over bowls of ice cream, cake, bread pudding, or cobbler. Suggestions for serving:

Pound cake cubes, bananas, shortbread cookies, doughnut holes, beignets.

Cut bananas for dipping just before serving. To prevent the bananas from darkening, quickly toss them in lemon juice, then drain and serve.
