Lesson 58 – Been a While so I have to Give Your Something Great – Hot Fudge Sauce


Ever wonder what commercially made hot fudge sauce is made from?  What’s thick, sweet, ooey-gooey, and not chocolatey at all?  Ok Bart, your hand is up.  Do you know?

Nope, not honey, but that was a good answer.

Jill…?

Nope, not agave syrup, but  you’re close.  Ok, so I’ll tell you.  The main ingredient in many hot fudge sauces, sitting on store shelves, have as their first, and most plentiful ingredient, wait for the drum roll, yes, corn syrup, sometimes high-fructose corn syrup.

Now I’m not an organic chemist, and don’t know how the body processes corn syrup, or high -fructose corn syrup.  But I do know that corn syrup of any kind does not taste like chocolate.

So, let’s make some real hot fudge sauce, make from real chocolate, and a few other premium ingredients.

Tools:                                                                                                                                                                      1. Pint sized, microwave safe glass jar, with screw on lid.                                                                   2. Small, wire balloon whisk                                                                                                                           3. Microwave Oven

Ingredients:                                                                                                                                                          Large Lindt Milk Chocolate bar                                                                                                                      Large Lindt White Chocolate bar                                                                                                                  Girhradelli Milk Chocolate Chips                                                                                                                   1/4 cup heavy cream

Break up the chocolate bars and place into the mason jar.  Add the cream.  place into your microwave an cook on highest setting for 1 minute, thirty seconds. Whisk the ingredients together, inside the jar, until silky smooth.

Fill the jar with the chocolate chips, and heat f0r thirty seconds more.  Again, whisk in the jar until smooth and creamy.

Now, add just a smidgeon of salt and whisk it in.  Taste it.  Good stuff, huh?  And you know its made with chocolate, not corn syrup, whey, or other things you can’t pronounce.

Now, place your masterpiece sauce into the fridge to chill.  Then it will be cool, like me. Serve with your favorite ice cream, hot of course.

Tip, pour your hot fudge sauce over a cake, like a ganache and when it cools, you will have a scrumptious, silky smooth frosting on your cake.  And of course, I invite you to change the recipe and turn it into your very own masterpiece.

There is no success outside of the hoe that justifies failure witn the home.
