Pure comfort food and perfect on ice cream. I am a great fan of piping hot sauces on ice cream I love the contrast of hot and cold, and the memory of when I used to go home for lunch in my first year at primary school my mother would; for a treat; give me vanilla ice-cream topped with hot homemade jam. All that sweet hot jammy goodness over the half melted cold ice-cream. Bliss.
This fudge sauce is unbelievably easy to make from just 3 ingredients and tastes wonderful and is incredibly moreish. I have made another batch of this immediately after scraping the pan clean on more occasions than I should admit. Any leftovers can be stored in a jam jar in the fridge and microwaved in the jar (minus lid) or eaten straight from the jar with a spoon.
Hot Fudge Sauce
Soft light brown sugar
I use my electronic scales and weigh straight into the saucepan.
Simmer for a few minutes, stirring all the time until thick and fudgey.
Serve straight away over ice-cream.
Use soft dark brown sugar for a more treacly sauce, or add half a cup of espresso for a coffee fudge sauce, but the cooking time will be longer.
