Best Hot Fudge Sauce & Hot Fudge Sundae Cakes

Alright, y’all.
I hate to do this, but I’ve got to post-and-run today!
No quirky stories or funny anecdotes, today. Forgive me?
See, it’s kind of late. I’ve got two others posts to write tonight, and all I want to do is re-read the second book in the Hunger Games series. So….. basically, I’m blowing you guys off for a little Peeta fix.
You understand, right?
Besides… there is nothing I can say that these pictures can’t say for themselves.
This hot fudge sauces is ridiculous. Ridiculous.
Even more ridiculous? This super simple, yet genius way to eat it: a gigantic scoop of vanilla bean ice cream sandwiched in between slices of perfect chocolate cake, and smothered in hot fudge sauce.
A friend served this to me after dinner one night. I took one bite and thought, “why have I not been eating this every day of my life?????
Trust me. You may think this looks simple. Obvious, even.
But it’s so much more than simple and obvious. It’s masterful.
Just try it. You’ll die. But in a happy way :)
Hot Fudge Sauce
Ingredients:
  •  1/2 c. butter
  • 6 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 3 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 can evaporated milk
Directions:
  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in cocoa powder until dissolved.
  2. Add granulated sugar 1 cup at a time, stirring well in between additions.
  3. Add can of evaporated milk. Whisk well until sugar is dissolved and sauce is smooth and beginning to thicken (will continue to thicken as it cools).

This is the chocolate cake recipe I like to use.
