This is sort of a happy accident. I was making a birthday cake recently and made a batch of ganache to fill it with. I had quite a bit left over and didn’t want to waste it so I put it in a container in my fridge. It hardened slightly in the fridge but stayed quite soft and I decided to try heating it up again to make hot fudge. Success! This is reminiscent of Dairy Queen’s Hot Fudge in my own personal opinion. It tastes JUST like the fudge in a Peanut Buster Parfait. You should make one at home! It’s summer time, which means ice cream can replace one meal a day with no guilt. Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself…
Two Ingredient Hot Fudge
Makes about 2 cups
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- ½ cup heavy cream
Put chocolate chips in a small bowl. Heat cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once the cream just starts to boil, pour it over the chocolate chips. Let it sit for two minutes and then start whisking slowly from the center out, whisking continually until totally smooth and blended. Pour over ice cream or let cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three weeks. To reheat, microwave in 15 second increments until warm and pourable. Whisk and serve.
