How to make Hot Fudge Sauce I Hot Fudge Sauce

Warmer days seem to be around the corner though I have nothing to complain about this past Winter. Almost felt like a mix of Spring, Summer, winter and a little bit of rain!! Having said that who doesn’t love care-free summer days, when you and the kids can down a tub of ice-cream and not have a care in the world! This post is for one of those the very near future.

One of my favourite indulgences is smooth creamy Vanilla ice-cream drenched in luscious Hot fudge Sauce, topped with nuts and sprinkles and candy and more sauce and…… well that would be a definition of my boys’ Sundae not mine! :) I would just stop at the nuts. A good big handful of it.

When I first made this Hot fudge Sauce from Dorie Greenspan’s “Baking From My home to yours”, boy was I in chocolate heaven..mmm finger liking good indeed! This makes a good batch and can be frozen too. My boys being chocolate fans, this is on their list of favorites too! The best part about this sauce is it forms a nice shell the minute it hits the cold ice cream…delicious!

You can use Bittersweet or Semi Sweet chocolate for this. I prefer Semi-Sweet.

You will need:
Makes: 1 ¼ cups

½ stick or 4 tbsp Unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces
6 ounces Bittersweet or Semi sweet Chocolate, finely chopped
¾ cup Heavy cream
3 tbsp Light corn Syrup
2 tbsp Sugar
¼ tsp Salt

Set a glass or steel bowl over another pot of simmering water. The bowl shouldn’t touch the water. Put the butter in the bowl, top with the chocolate and heat, stirring occasionally until melted. Remove from heat one its smooth.

In another pan, stir together the cream, corn syrup, sugar and salt. Combine and bring to a boil. Boil for a minute and then remove from heat. Pour ¼ of this mixture onto the chocolate and using a rubber spatula combine in circles. When combined add the remaining cream in two additions and stir until smooth and shiny. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before using or transfer to an air-tight container.

If chilled, this sets up hard. To use it, warm gently in the microwave on low power setting to melt it and make it shiny and smooth again.

Top your favorite ice cream with this warm sauce and enjoy!
