I did promise that I’d give you the recipe for the hot chocolate fudge sauce recipe I enjoyed on Friday night whilst my other half was out drinking. Over a scoop or two of plain vanilla ice cream it’s the best!
This recipe makes enough for 2 fairly greedy people:
50g dark chocolate
15g unsalted butter
60 ml water
1 Tbsp golden syrup
1 Tbsp sugar (my preference is for golden caster)
Pinch of salt
couple of drops of vanilla extract
Melt the choco and the butter in the microwave, putting it on for 30 secs on High then stirring, then another 30 secs until it’s mainly melted and nearly smooth. The residual heat will take care of any further lumps. At the same time, bring the water to the boil on the stove in a small pan. Add the melted choc and butter to the water and stir until smooth. Now add the golden syrup, sugar and salt and bring the lot to the boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer, stirring regularly. Simmer for several minutes until the sauce is thickened and glossy, then stir in the vanilla. Pour over ice cream, or pancakes, or profiteroles and enjoy!
