And then as time has a way of marching one, Father's day also took place, right smack in the middle of wedding countdown/planning/tasks. We were busy moving son and his belongings and then getting our own house in shape. We set up an office for both of us to use and a combination craft/sewing/ironing room for me. But since I share all my belongings, my dear husband is very welcome to use the ironing board or even the sewing machine for that matter....
But lets get back to the real reason for this post. Hot Fudge Sauce, yep that is correct. Homemade hot fudge sauce from ingredients you most likely have on hand. Let's make some now, shall we?
Hot Fudge Sauce
loosely adapted from: View from the Great Island
makes approximately 31/2 cups, plenty to enjoy and gift to family and friends!
1/2 c butter
1/4 c baking cocoa
1 1/2 c semi sweet chocolate chips
1 large can evaporated milk
2 c confectioners sugar
1 T vanilla
Melt butter and cocoa together over low heat, whisk until smooth.
Add chocolate chips, stir. Add milk and sugar, raise heat to medium.
Whisk constantly until mixture is smooth and comes to a simmer.
Lower heat, let simmer while stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, whisk in vanilla.
In the name of research, we tried this sauce over vanilla and then over chocolate and it is safe to say, delicious on both!
Serve warm over ice cream. Refrigerate leftovers.
To serve from the refrigerator: Scoop some fudge sauce into the bottom a bowl, warm in the microwave for 10-20 seconds, add ice cream and enjoy! You won't be sorry........
