It’s been kind of a wild ride around here lately. After staying up way too late last week after Zombie Goldilocks made his unwelcome appearance, I had one of those days where I’m sure that my doctor has red flagged my medical folder with the symbol for “crazy loon” (Must bring them doughnuts this week!). In front of my house, a lobster smelling puppy was lost, all skinny and scared. I fed her organic nitrate free ham while she shook in the rain. Thankfully she’s found her way back home thanks to this great dog community here at Willard Beach- especially Adele from Scratch who took her home for safe keeping.
So what’s a person to do after all this? If you are me, you’ll simply make some hot fudge!
Now, I know you are saying to yourself, “Don’t make it, buy it.” That’s not the right attitude. Homemade hot fudge is as easy as scrambling an egg. You simply melt chocolate chips or a bar of thick wonderful chocolate with a stick of butter. Then you add some sugar, maybe 2/3 to 3/4 a cup. Then you slowly pour evaporated milk in and stir until thick. Roughly six to ten minutes. If you buy sweetened condensed milk by mistake, just don’t add the sugar.
I’ve also spiked this with Grand Marnier and Bailey’s Irish Cream. I’ve added peanut butter. I’ve thinned it with more milk to make it last longer and I’ve let it harden and eaten it cold out of a spoon.
I think ice cream and hot fudge cures most things. Don’t you?
