Well, we are approaching summer time! What goes with summer? Ice cream! I’m practicing for summer. Ha!
Who doesn’t like a hot fudge sundae. But ya gotta start with a good fudge sauce. Not just any fudge sauce. I like the kind that’s sticky and chewy. Like when it hits the ice cream, it firms up a bit and is like chewy chocolate yum-ness. Have you had that kind of fudge sauce? You don’t want the runny kind that just slides off your ice cream. So, that’s why you just have to try this fudgy goodness.
It makes great gifts. Imagine a cute little (or huge) jar filled with fudge sauce, in a gift basket. You could include an ice cream scooper, maybe some nuts or a jar of cherries, or some sprinkles. Oh! and a couple of cute ice cream sundae bowls! Is that a great gift idea or what!! Ok, please feel free to send me one! hahahha, just kidding.
This fudge topping is super inexpensive to make. It’s also very easy. You will make it again and again. I know you will love this stuff.
Sticky Chewy Fudge Sauce
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
6 Tblsp cocoa powder
3 Tblsp corn syrup
1/4 cup milk or half and half
1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)
In a saucepan, add everything but the vanilla. Stir over medium heat until butter is melted and sauce is smooth. Bring to a boil. As soon as it boils, reduce the heat to a simmer and stir constantly for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
Allow to cool slightly before serving or pouring into a jar. This will keep for a few weeks in the fridge, but trust me, it wont last that long.
Reheat for 15 seconds in the microwave, before serving.
Makes 1 1/2 cups
