Hot Fudge Sauce - A dessert and a marital aid...


There's nothing quite as wonderful as a warm fudge sauce poured over homemade ice cream (see previous post for vanilla ice cream recipe) and a homemade fudge sauce elevates the already grand ice cream to an ethereal delight. It is impossible to describe, so you need to make some and describe it to yourself.

At Snowy Palms Resort it is used in the kitchen to be served atop Lazy Bastard's wonderful ice cream, and when it is in the fridge there are those that enjoy it in an entirely different way and does it disappear fast. In the interest of decorum I won't go on further about that sordid subject, suffice it to say, it is not just a dessert topping Dorothy...




Hot Fudge Sauce

2/3 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed firmly
1/4 cup cocoa powder (Dutch process cocoa is best for this and Fry’s is great!)

1/4 tsp salt
6 oz dark (70%) or extra dark chocolate (85%), chopped and divided in half

2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla 


Place cream, corn syrup, sugar, cocoa, salt, and half of chocolate into a heavy sauce pan.

Place over medium heat then bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Reduce heat to low-medium to achieve a light bubbling action, cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat. 

Add butter, vanilla, and remaining half of the chopped chocolate then stir until smooth. 

Cool sauce to warm before serving. Then watch the smiles and expressions of joy and rapture take over as your guests enjoy a bit of earthly, fudgy, bliss...

Store in a plastic container that has a tight fitting lid.  It'll last 10 days in the fridge.
