We had a Sundae Social for our church women this week. Basically the ladies met to talk (duh) and made homemade sundaes. We provided the ice cream and everybody brought a topping. Fresh strawberries are in season here so they were yummy. Someone brought broken up Oreos and another brought homemade carmel sauce. I made hot fudge sauce. I used a recipe from Better Homes and Gardens in 1999!
I had 5 recipes to chose from, I'm still not sure which is the best. I think I need to make them all in one sitting and try them all out. What do you think? How else will I know which one is the best?
Hot Fudge Sauce
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
3 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup whipping cream
In a small bowl stir together cocoa powder and sugars, set aside. In a heavy small saucepan melt butter with cream over low heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir over medium heat about 3 minutes or until mixture bubbles around edges. Add sugar mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes more until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth and thickened. Serve immediately. Or, cover and store in a refrigerator up to one week. To reheat on stovetop, in a small heavy saucepan stir sauce frequently over low heat. To reheat in microwave place chilled topping in a 2-cup measure. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes till heated through.
