My father-in-law works at a dairy that sells the best ice cream around. It's seriously so good and a must whenever we visit home. For dessert after Christmas dinner this year my husband's parents decided to serve something other than pies or cakes or anything that was baked and heavy; something lighter and a change of pace. So we had peppermint chocolate chip ice cream from the dairy with homemade hot fudge sauce. And friends, I have to tell you that this stuff was beyond amazing. I was so in love with it that I had to have seconds. Ok, thirds. It was such a fabulous dessert after all the heavy brownies and cakes that we'd vegged out on all week long. (Not that there was anything wrong with that by any means. It was an amazing week.) Enjoy!
Hot Fudge Sauce
from the kitchen of my fabulous mother-in-law :)
- 1 square of baking chocolate
- 1 cube margarine
- 3/4 c. evaporated milk
- 2 c. powdered sugar
Throw everything in a sauce pan and let it melt together, stirring to help it along. Let it simmer for 5-8 minutes, continuing to stir. Serve over ice cream, bananas, or just eat it with a spoon!
