So, amid the bottles of cooling grape juice and the stove top steamer (still 1 1/2 bushels of grapes to go!) I found a few moments to make more Hot Fudge Sauce. I'm not sure where I got the recipe, but this one is Vet2Be's favorite version. This recipe cooks up in about 15 minutes and I usually have all the ingredients on hand.
Hot Fudge Sauce (makes about 2 cups of sauce)
- 2/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch cocoa
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 6 ounces fine quality bittersweet chocolate
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla
Reduce heat and cook at a low boil, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
Add butter, vanilla, and remaining chocolate and stir until smooth. Cool sauce to warm before serving.
The recipe says that it can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a week. Ours had been in the fridge for months and still tasted wonderful :)
