Tasty Tuesday: Hot Fudge

Tasty Tuesday
When I called family friend Sharyn to ask if I could post the tortellini soup recipe she passed on to us, not only did she say "Absolutely!" but she gave me a hot fudge recipe as well. I've recently had, thanks to warmer weather, a chance to make it for the first time--the first time, yes, but not the last.

It works a little like Magic Shell, if you've ever used that (I love Magic Shell, especially the Twix kind) but has the real chocolate-and-butter homemade flavor.

Hot Fudge

Melt 1 stick of butter with 2 one-ounce squares of bakers' chocolate.

Stir in 1 cup of sugar till it melts.

Heat 1/4 cup milk or cream and stir that into the chocolate mixture until it thickens.

Add a little vanilla, almond or mint extract. (I didn't write down a measurement, and probably didn't bother with a measure... maybe half a teaspoon?)

Serve warm. According to Sharyn, the leftovers work well as frosting between chocolate chip cookies. I'd bet they do. But I made it with family around, and we just didn't have enough left over to try that. :)
