Hot Fudge Recipe – 3 Ingredients, Low Carb, Sugar Free
A few weeks ago we took the kids to Friendly’s for dessert as a special treat. I rarely cheat on my diet but I couldn’t resist helping my toddler with her hot fudge sundae. The hot fudge was so good I couldn’t stop. I can’t remember the last time I had real hot fudge. I know it has been years.
A week or so later when I was making the ganache to fill my Chocolate Ganache Filled Raspberries and top my Raspberry Waffles I ended up with an excess. Is it ever a problem to have excess ganache? I think not. So I put it in a little mason jar and stuck it in the fridge.
A few days later I came across some Vanilla Latte Ice Cream in my freezer. I really really thought I was out of ice cream. It was a very pleasant surprise. Even more pleasant when I heated up that chocolate ganache, added a bit more cream, and ended up with a perfect hot fudge sauce.
Over the next couple days, I tweaked this hot fudge recipe to get the perfect measurements. I’ve also tried heating and cooling the hot fudge in the jar a few times and it works well. Since this does use real cream I wouldn’t heat it in the jar more than a few times or keep it longer than a week or two. But I doubt it will last that long anyway. I know mine didn’t.
The trick to this is blending it. You need to blend it in a blender, rocket blender, or food processor to make it smooth and shiny. I prefer my hot fudge on the thick side. If you want yours a little thinner just add warm cream 1 tbsp at a time until it is your desired consistency.
- Microwave: Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl, removing and stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in the sweetener. It will clump up and look thick. Warm the cream in a glass measuring cup. Stir the warm cream into the chocolate. Spoon over ice cream. Lick the spoon.
- Stovetop: Combine the chocolate and cream in a small saucepan. Stir continuously over low heat until the chocolate is melted. Stir in the sweetener. Spoon over ice cream. Lick the spoon.
