On a fit of whimsy I decided to make some hot fudge sauce. I found the recipe over at simply gourmet. Although, all you have to do is remember the 3 "c" s.
A Cup (of chips)
A Can (of condensed milk)
A Cube (aka stick of butter)
You melt the butter in a pan, then add the chips. When they are melted add the condensed milk and stir over the heat until it's all mixed together.
Nice and rich and chocolatey.
But when you store it in the fridge it hardens up like this:
Ok so this one has been in the microwave for 30 seconds so it's spreadable, or easier to eat by the spoonful.
It gets pretty solid, or fudge-like once fully chilled.
Aside from straight off a spoon, this is the best way to eat it:
Spread some of this softened fudge on a graham cracker, then place the other graham cracker square on a microwaveable plate. Pop a marshmellow on that bad boy and nuke it for 10 seconds until it looks large and in charge. Top with the chocolate coated cracker, and BAM...instant smores sans fire.
It beats roasting the marshmellows over your gas stove and almost setting your house on fire.
