After taking an inventory of my pantry -- I concluded that THERE WAS NOTHING CHOCOLATE TO EAT. Of course, that was no surprise. Chocolate cannot survive in my house. I mean -- I only buy it to eat it...right???
Chocolate is not going to last. It simply doesn't have the life expectancy of, say, a bar of soap or a bottle of ketchup...
So, in an emergency situation -- what can a girl do? After doing an internet search -- many recipes for hot fudge sauce called for stuff I did not have. Hummm...I did find some Hershey's cocoa...???
Hell...it's worth a shot. I put all this in a saucepan and cooked it until it was bubbly...
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup Half and Half
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoons vanilla (I added this at the end)
|Hershey's has NEVER LET ME DOWN...|
|I kept whisking...it took about 6 minutes to come to a boil...|
|And it got nice and thick...(even more so after it cooled)|
|Oh, yes, this was a VERY GOOD IDEA...|
|I broke up some graham crackers in the bottom of the bowl. The ice cream was mediocre, but the hot fudge sauce was AMAZING...|
