Somebody’s Mother’s Gourmet Dessert Sauces: Group 2
It is almost four years since we first discovered Somebody’s Mother’s dessert sauces—Chocolate Sauce, White Chocolate Sauce and Caramel Sauce—and named them a Top Pick Of The Week (here’s the original review). The chocolate sauces remain our favorite dessert sauces.
Now, the Houston-based dessert magicians have doubled the size of the line, with three new dessert sauces.
For “group two,” the Somebody’s Mother’s team took the three original sauces and enhanced them with secondary notes. The results, as with “group one,” are heavenly.
These gourmet dessert sauces are all-natural, and made from the very best chocolate, cream and butter that money can buy.
- Island Sauce enhances the company’s divine white chocolate sauce with coconut puree, coconut rum and lots of macadamia nuts.
- Mocha Sauce takes the divine chocolate sauce and layers it with coffee and chicory, creating what might be the best mocha sauce ever.
- Praline Sauce is a creamy caramel sauce of heavy cream, sugar, butter and salt, packed with roasted walnuts.
The 9.5-ounce jars are $10.00 each, and are sold on the Somebody’s Mother’s website in sets of two.
Plan ahead for Mother’s Day gifts. There is beautiful packaging for two- and three-jar gift sets. Just one jar, though, makes a memorable gift.
