I find the most decadent foods to usually be homemade. It just so happens that they also usually contain chocolate.

 

This is another recipe from Barb, who I am convinced has made some of the most amazing dishes I’ve ever encountered. It should come as no surprise, since her husband was a world-renowned chef.

 

It’s no secret that I love chocolate. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and that’s no exaggeration. I usually don’t like chocolate syrup or chocolate fudge sauce – I find many of them to be fake tasting or too runny.

However, this homemade fudge sauce is divine. It is also super simple and quick to make.

And it’s thick and fudgey, too. Just the way I like it.

I’m sure a ‘healthier’ version of this could be made, but I don’t feel there is a reason. It’s not as if you are going to eat a cup at a time, and a tablespoon or so won’t derail you from your goals.

Unless, of course, you are like me and eat it by the spoonfuls once you are finished making it.

 

In order to make myself feel better about that, I drizzled some over Coconut Bliss ice cream. It was incredible.

I also may mix a little into my Greek yogurt later . . . Mmmmm.

 

 

Homemade Chocolate Fudge Sauce

1 cup sugar

1 cup cocoa

2 tablespoons flour

pinch of salt

1 cup boiling water or scalding milk

1 tablespoon of butter

1 teaspoon of vanilla

Combine sugar, cocoa, salt, and flour in a bowl or pot over a double boiler. Bring water or milk to a boil. Gradually add hot liquid to sugar mixture. Stir constantly until mixture thickens.

Once it has reached the desired thickness, remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla.

Serve on ice cream, crepes, or yogurt.

Now please go make some of this, and store it in a little container in your fridge. It is fabulous cold. I would know, since I’ve been having scheduled tastings on a daily basis.

Chocolate will brighten any day. We all need a taste. :)

    definitely saving this one! oh yum. I am so hungry right now, and I think I would eat this stuff by the spoon. I do that to store-bought fudge sauce too, though, so that’s nothing new. :) next time we have friends over, I’m buying ice cream and making this sauce!

    My quick n dirty vegan version would be coconut oil, cocoa powder, agave, vanilla extract, stir. The butter in yours would kinda make this totally awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey Jess,
    Looks yummy…I remember your great grandma Merchant had a fabulous “Hot Fudge” sauce recipe..I remember giving jars of it for Christmas gifts..I think it may have had evaporated milk in it…your Grandma Merchant would probably have the recipe or at least remember it, I know it was really easy..thanks for jogging my memory about it…stay warm, it was 71 degrees here today, maybe you should come visit…Love ya

    Oh sweet mercy mercy! I made this, and it was incredible. Also ate it off a spoon, how could I not? I think it will be a staple on ALL THE FOODS from hereon in.

    Mine came out incredible thick though, despite only using 1 tbsp flour – any ideas why? No complaints, mind ;)
