Microwave Hot Fudge Sauce
Hi everybody :)
I have a confession to make, I don't use my microwave for cooking. I mostly use it to reheat food already prepared, to melt something in a hurry, or for popcorn. I know, it's suppose to make food prep easier, save time, and energy.
Candy recipes are fine for the microwave, but I shy away from any microwave-cooking that deal with meat or fish; especially chicken. I totally avoid that section in my cookbooks. I just can't get pass the idea of microwaving certain things, maybe one day I will...
Now I would like to share this recipe with you from my collection, this one is just too good to avoid :)
Microwave Hot Fudge Sauce adapted "Yours, Mine & Ours" Cookbook
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons cocoa (I used Hershey's Cocoa Special Dark)
1 1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch ( I used 2 1/2 Tablespoons)
Dash of salt
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix dry ingredients in a 2-cup glass dish.
Stir in water and cook 1 -2 minutes; stir every 30 seconds, or until thick.
|Mixture with Water|
Add butter and cook 30 seconds more. Stir thoroughly and add vanilla. Makes 1 cup. Serve on ice cream.
What I Did and /or Think:
This was GREAT, what could be bad about hot fudge sauce anyway, NOTHING. I did add an extra tablespoon cornstarch for a little thicker sauce, but if you like it a little thin this recipe is perfect.
For a Macho Taste add 1 tablespoon instant coffee along with the dry ingredients or 1 - 2 Tablespoons of Kahlua after adding the vanilla.
This is another great REPEAT!
ENJOY! Come again.....
