This month’s Secret Recipe Club assignment definitely creeped up on me, I must admit. It’s been a crazy few weeks here, between Bella’s 5th birthday, end of summer/getting ready for school, and her first day of Kindergarten being today! Combine that with a few other personal things going on and it’s been nothing short of hectic.
I actually bookmarked this recipe when I first got Phemomenon as my assigned blog, but almost let it slip by…good thing I had my nieces over for dinner and needed to come up with a dessert! Holly is a super busy mom that sure has a lot on her plate, but seems to manage it all like a pro. She’s got a lot of great recipes, so be sure to check out her blog soon!
This is a recipe that everyone should have in their arsenal – a big crowd pleaser (for kids AND adults) that’s super easy to make.
Be sure to check out all the great recipes from Secret Recipe Club this week!
5 Minute Hot Fudge Sauce
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate (Ghirardelli or other high quality), finely chopped
4 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
In a microwave safe bowl, mix cream, corn syrup, brown sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Microwave on high for about one minute, and stir to smooth out. Add chocolate and butter and let sit for one minute. Stir until smooth. Place back in microwave for 30 seconds, or until smooth. Add vanilla and stir.
Use immediately, or store in refrigerator after cooled. To use after refrigerated, heat in microwave for 10 seconds at a time until smooth.
Makes 2 cups.
