With just 3 ingredients and 2 minutes you can make a delicious chocolate fudge sauce, perfect for pouring over your favourite ice cream of for using as a chocolate dipping sauce.
This chocolate sauce takes me back to my childhood. I don’t remember much of the food I ate when I was little (sorry Mum, I’m sure it was all very delicious), but I do remember that for a treat we’d have vanilla ice cream with homemade chocolate sauce poured over the top. I think part of the reason I remember was that me and my sister used to make it. Another reason is that if I knew we had ice cream in the house I’d sometimes make myself a sneaky batch after school if I needed a bit of a pick-me-up before tackling my homework (sorry again Mum).
This is absolutely not a sophisticated recipe, it’s yummy and sweet and what I would call “comfort food”. It’s also incredibly simple to make. When I was younger we used to simply put all of the ingredients in a bowl and blast them in the microwave for about a minute. Nowadays I prefer to melt it all on the hob because I find it relaxing to stand and stir things for a minute or two, it also feels more like cooking which makes me happy 🙂
As well as being perfect for pouring over ice cream and dipping random fruit, marshmallows or biscuits, this also makes a nice chocolate filling. As it’s soft you’ll need to make the chocolates in a mould and then pour in the sauce once it’s cooled. If you’d like to know how then take a look at my caramel filled chocolate and simply substitute the caramel filling for this chocolate fudge sauce.
