Hot Fudge Sauce

Raise your hand if you love hot fudge sundaes.
Me, me, me, me, me!
This outstanding recipe is from David Lebovitz's highly entertaining book, The Sweet Life in Paris.  It's a memoir about his life in France, sprinkled with recipes, many of them chocolate.  This particular one came from his friend Nancy Meyers, a Hollywood director and screenwriter, who makes a mean hot fudge sauce.  Not kidding.
So even though we are a tad past National Hot Fudge Sundae Day (July 25), do your sweet tooth a happy little good deed and whip up a batch of this yumminess.
 You will thank me in the morning.

3 T. butter (I used salted; recipe calls for unsalted)
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa-powder
1/3 c. heavy cream
pinch of salt

Put all ingredients in a small pan; stir over low heat until the butter melts.  Keep cooking and stirring for about three more minutes, until all is melted and smooth.
Can be refrigerated for one week; you can reheat it in the microwave.

I think it sounds wonderful. I think it would be nice to make up and store in the fridge.
I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. It is nice to see an update. :)
