I love chocolate. I do. As is evidenced from this post where I write about snacking on chocolate at midnight. The DH also knows that I like chocolate. Recently, I told him that I was craving chocolate, and he came home later that night with a whole BAG of it! Every type of chocolate bar he could find, he bought, along with some fancier types of Lindt bars, and even Haagen-Daas chocolate chip chocolate ice cream! (He knows me well.) He scored major brownie (see, chocolate!) points, I have to say!
And then this weekend we had guests over, so I made some Hot Fudge Sauce from a childhood recipe, to serve a la mode over individual ramekins of chocolate bread pudding. It was de-lic-ious! And our guests were impressed, which is always a bonus! 🙂
This recipe makes quite a bit of sauce, so you can keep it in a jar in the fridge until you finish it up. It’s great to add to milk to make a rich chocolate milk, but don’t use more than 1 tbsp. per 2 cups of milk, or it’ll be too chocolate-y (yes, there is such a thing!) — it’s that rich and dense! I just ate some with some ice cream, and it was so chocolate-y that it made the chocolate ice cream taste like vanilla. True story.
Enough with the descriptions, let’s make some sauce !
Best Ever Hot Fudge Sauce
- 1 c. cocoa
- 1 1/2 c. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 1/2 c. water
Bring all ingredients to boil in a saucepan, and then simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. That’s it, you’re done!
After serving 7 servings of this, I still have a standard canning jar of syrup left. And since the DH doesn’t like chocolate, it’s mine, all mine! Bwahahaha! *composes self* *smiles angelically* And now to have a glass of chocolate milk before bed!
