Try adding some peanut butter. I bet you'll never go back to regular ole chocolate fudge sauce again!!!
Rating: 5 stars
I've made this twice now and it's my favorite hot fudge recipe. I just made it and had to substitute a few ingredients and it tastes just as good. Light cream for heavy cream just had to add some extra butter. Unsweetened squares instead of cocoa. Powdered sugar for granulated sugar. Powdered sugar and molasses for brown sugar. Semi sweet baking chips for bittersweet. This is now my go to recipe for hot fudge.
I've made this four times, each with different bittersweet chocolates. Using a darker slightly more bitter chocolate is the best. Once used a 70% that was floral and the sauce was a little too sweet.
Use better quality chocolate for the best result.
It is far from chocolate syrup.
I think what suzie70070 is saying rather succinctly is that this is a very sweet syrup with some chocolate in it! I have to say, that when I read the recipe I thought it looked tooth-achingly sweet so I added the sugars to taste and it is delicious.
Not sure what "chocolate syrup" below means? I cut the recipe in quarter to not overeat as warned in another review (wise!) I did substitute regular unsweetened cocoa as I find the Dutch is harder to locate these days. If you let it sit a few minutes, it thickens up and is more like traditional sauce. Very good flavor-would be a great topping for cream puffs!
Yum yum yum.... I've made a couple batches of this, and it never fails. There are times where I just eat this with a spoon and forget about whatever I was supposed to pour it on!!
When the 2/11 issue of MSL arrived, with that gorgeous cover photo, I was having a serious chocolate craving. I made a half batch of this hot fudge, using a high quality cocoa powder and extra bittersweet chocolate. My husband and I ate it every night for four nights, going through two QUARTS of vanilla ice cream!!! I began looking forward to my next serving immediately after swallowing the last bite, and thought about it a dozen or so times between them. IT IS SO GOOD!!! Just be careful...
