Hot Fudge Sundaes

Some nights, you just want a big ol’ ice cream sundae. And no sundae is complete without rich, luxurious hot fudge.

Take note.

I like keeping my hot fudge sundaes fairly straightforward. Vanilla bean ice cream. Fruit. Definitely bananas. Perhaps some freeze-dried strawberries and raspberries. A sprinkle of peanuts, if I’m feelin’ fancy.

And lots of piping hot fudge.

I wanted to make the hot fudge recipe that my mom used to make when I was a kid, but I couldn’t find the right chocolate when I was at the store at 11pm with a major chocolate craving a completely reasonable hour. So I improvised a bit, and was happy with the results.

Was it as good as the stuff I grew up with?


But was it totally delicious in my moment of desparation?

You betcha!

Big Flavors from a Tiny Kitchen (adapted from Mom)

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate (I used 100% cacao Ghirardelli)
1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Place condensed milk, chocolate and milk in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Allow to melt, stirring frequently, until the mixture turns smooth and glossy (this will take several minutes). Remove from heat, stir in butter, vanilla and salt.
