So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

Monday's Menu

Well, you've made your homemade ice cream. Now let's put something on it. How about Hot Fudge?

Yes, you can make it yourself.

No, its not any better for you.

But at least you know exactly what's in it. And, therefore, you can substitute organic ingredients or experiment with lower fat ingredients if you like. I also imagine you could switch the chocolate for some other flavored bark for a different taste although I've never tried that.

Said the confirmed chocoholic.

In fact, you could probably have all kinds of fun with this recipe and a little creativity. Green colored white chocolate for Hot Slop Sauce at Halloween. Or coordinating colors to go with a birthday party theme or other event. Keep brainstorming.

This recipe came from a book I got from the library a very long time ago. I believe it was called
"The Ice Cream Book."

Hot Fudge Sauce

6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped (or equivalent semi-sweet chips)
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1 Tablespoon cream or milk

In a small saucepan, cook chocolate and water over low heat until melted smooth. Whisk in butter/margarine and cream/milk. Serve warm. Makes 1 1/2 cups.

My mom used to make it by putting cocoa powder in corn syrup (and heating it up in the microwave). It had more of a dark chocolate taste, but the coolest part was that it would sort of harden when cooled by the ice cream. I don't mean hard like magic shell; it was more, uh... chewy, I guess. I'll have to try it your way sometime. That actually seems healthier than corn syrup.
