1 cup caramel ice cream topping
1⁄3 cup real maple syrup
Grated lemon peel

This elegant dessert is stunning all by itself, or you can add an additional layer of flavor by stirring in 1⁄2 cup raisins or orange-flavored dried cranberries with the ice cream topping. Drizzle a little cream over the sauce that falls onto the plate, if you like.
