Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

I've been seeing bloggers feature the cookbook Breakfast for Dinner. A lot of them are doing a book giveaway that I know I won't win, so I decided to buy myself a little Valentine's Day present. I've already tagged like 15 recipes to make....and most of them are actual meals, believe it or not!

To not let you all down, I did make a recipe from the dessert section first. Homemade Hot Fudge. Umm, yum. It was such an easy recipe and it only makes 1 1/2 cups so it probably won't go to waste. Of course this would be perfect on top of ice cream, but you could drizzle it on just about anything; pie, cake, french toast, cookies. You get the idea. :)

Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 TBSP flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup boiling water
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 TBSP unsalted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, cocoa, flour, and salt. Add in boiling water, corn syrup, and butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat and then let simmer for 7-8 minute, whisking occasionally. After the 7-8 minutes the sauce will thicken up.

Remove from heat and transfer to heatproof bowl. Add in vanilla extract and stir. Allow fudge sauce to cool completely and stir every so often (20-30 minutes). Don't refrigerate  when warm or it could become grainy.

When cooled and at room temperature, pour into a glass jar or airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.

When using, warm up in the microwave (not very much) and pour over icecream, cake, cookies, etc.
