FABULOUS HOT FUDGE SAUCE
Pamela L Karas

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup soft brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tblsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tblsp boiling water
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions: Place the first 3 ingredients into a 4 cup pyrex measuring cup (or tall sided microwave safe container). Whisk the dry ingredients together until thoroughly mixed and no trace of lumps exists.

Add 1/2 cup + 3 tablespoons boiling water to the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Microwave on HIGH for 4 minutes or until quite thick ,stirring midway. Keep a careful watch on it.It should not overflow but it will boil up quite a lot. Remove from microwave and stir in vanilla.Serve.

This sauce refrigerates to an even thicker consistency for use as a cold chocolate sauce or as a dip for sliced fruit and can be reheated to serve hot again.

Note: I recommend using a European-style (non-alkalized) cocoa (not Hershey type) because the flavor of the sauce is better but either will work.

BTW, Cocoa does contain a small amount of fat depending on quality and brand, it is not totally fat free. (Back to Menu)
