Hot Fudge Sundaes win the contest for my favorite chocolate. I splurge a whole day's caloric intake once a year and go full out, major sundae indulgence. I have to have the best vanilla ice cream to begin with. That's not Baskin and Robbins. It's homemade, hand cranked ice cream from my grandmother's recipe.
Then the special hot fudge sundae glass is a must.
Freshly chopped and toasted walnuts and . . . what else?
HOME MADE HOT FUDGE SAUCE, THAT'S WHAT!This makes about 3 1/2 C. so it lasts exactly one day at our house . . . the HOT FUDGE SUN DAY.
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 2/3 cup cocoa powder
- 2 whole cups milk
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Over medium heat, combine milk, butter and vanilla until the butter has melted. Add dry ingredients to the milk mixture, constantly whisking. Boil, stirring constantly until thick and smooth, about 5 minutes. Cool and refrigerate unused portion.
You reheat this in a double-boiler, or microwave, but as purist I use the whole 3 1/2 cups that day. I do share when I make these, so other benefit from my yearly fetish.
Now top that off with a maraschino cherry and I'm in heaven.
