Hot Fudge Sauce

This is a warning–the food you are seeing in no way healthy or good for you…that being said, it’s extremely delicious and decadent.

Ben & Jerry’s are the ice cream gods (in my eyes).  I’ve been infatuated with their ice cream and history since I was a little kid; so much so that I did a speech on their company in 5th grade (yes, I’ve always been a dork).  During high school, one of my best friends introduced me to the art of ice cream making using a Cuisinart machine and this book.

I was in love.  I immediately went home and bought both the Cuisinart ice cream machine and Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book.

This is the best ice cream cookbook I have found to this day.  Not only do they include ice cream recipes, but they also include a recipe for Hot Fudge Sauce….oh my gosh it is good.  I highly recommend you make this if you have a few hours to spare and want a delicious homemade ice cream topping.  It is one of the few recipes I will actually follow and not deviate from.

Hot Fudge Sauce

From Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup cream

Rough chop the chocolate (if you want things to move a tad quicker) and combine with the butter on top of a double boiler…Stir until smooth…look at that buttery, chocolately goodness.

.Add the cocoa powder

and whisk until combined.

With a slotted spoon, gradually stir in the sugar.

This mixture should look and feel like wet sand.

Cook and occasionally stir the wet sand mixture over simmering water for 20 min.

Gradually stir in the milk and cream.

Cook and occasionally stir for 1 hr.

Enjoy over ice cream, brownies, etc.

Stay tuned for what I plan to do with this vat of hot fudge….I personally cannot wait…can you?
