The sky is grey today and the temperature is dropping. It's about 40 degrees colder today than it was at the same time yesterday. The rain started this afternoon and the weatherman tells us that it's likely to turn to snow before morning.
Our first snow storm. Everyone knows what that means - hot....fudge? As in Sundae?
Sure. Why not?
Hot Fudge Sauce
1/2 cup cream
3 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
pinch of salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
Place cream and butter in a heavy 1 quart pan over moderate heat. Stir until butter is melted and cream comes to a low boil. Add both sugars and stir until they are dissolved. Reduce heat. Add salt and cocoa and stir briskly with a small whisk until smooth.
Drizzle it over some ice cream, and enjoy.
