The sale I’ve had my eye out for all year has finally come around… Buy one, get one free of Talenti gelato… If you haven’t had it before, it’s amazing; just look in your ice cream aisle. I LOVE the Mediterranean Mint, but can’t quite bring myself around to paying their regular price, so I keep an eye out for the special tag that tells me it’s time to splurge. The only problem is that it’s way too cold out for ice-cream… So my solution? Hot Fudge Sauce. But not a just any hot fudge sauce…. a homemade, corn-syrup-free, dark chocolate, so good you’ll eat it by the spoonful, hot fudge sauce.
The ingredients are simple, and the process easy, but the result is so much better than anything you’ll buy at the store.
The only danger here is of a mess… In the process of trying to get a photograph without staining my white carpet, I finally just gave in to the drips 🙂 But it ended up a beautiful, delicious mess.
If you can restrain yourself from eating or sharing it all immediately, you can store it in the fridge for a couple weeks, and slowly reheat in the microwave 10 seconds at a time, until the sauce is warm and thick but can be stirred.
I’m thinking I may take a shortcut for a potluck this weekend and just pour this over some raspberries… If you’d like to see photos of that and other behind the scenes mishaps, be sure to follow my cup is full on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
