It has been way to long since I posted. And here we are in the midst of #Choctoberfest. I blame colds and hurricanes. Regardless I am back this week with a slew of chocolate posts.
Let's just say this past weekend was super sweet. First up is this amazing hot fudge sauce. I had this go to recipe for hot fudge from the microwave. It was my constant until now. This recipe is just four ingredient and one pot on the stove top. Five minutes later and you have this amazingly rich and thick hot fudge sauce. It is so good you don't even need ice cream. Just grab a spoon.
I used Imperial Sugar for my granulated sugar ingredient. I love that it is not chunky and pours smooth. This is key for nice and smooth hot fudge. No one wants lumpy hot fudge sauce. The recipe makes about 3 cups, quite a bit of hot fudge but it stores well in the fridge in an air tight container.
Hot Fudge Sauce
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Keywords: saute dessert chocolate
Ingredients (makes 3 cups)
- 1 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1 cup Imperial Sugar
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- 1 stick Salted Butter, Cut Into Pieces
In a medium saucepan, gently whisk together the cocoa powder and sugar.
Whisk in the cream, then turn the heat to medium and whisk it as it warms up.
When the mixture starts to heat up, add the butter and stir it in to melt. Then when the mixture is nice hot stir it to combine. Sauce will thicken.
Let the sauce cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer it to a jar. Store it in the fridge (it will become solid as it cools).
To serve, scoop out the amount you need and place it in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat it for 20 seconds, then stir and heat for another 10 or until the sauce is warm.
