Hot Fudge Sauce
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.
You will thank me in the morning.
NANCY MEYERS'S HOT FUDGE SAUCE
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.
