This recipe takes me back to Hot Fudge Creampuffs from Saunder's Candy Store near Detroit. This recipe is a clone of a Michigan favorite, Saunder's Hot Fudge Topping.
- 6 ounces semisweet chocolate
- 4 ounces unsweetened solid baking cocoa
- 1 cup butter
- 1 dash salt
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 14 ounces light Karo syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Mix all ingredients, except vanilla, in double boiler.
- Cook 30 minutes over boiling water.
- Stir constantly until smooth.
- Remove from heat.
- Beat and add vanilla.
- Do not over heat.
I was in charge of a dessert bar at our local Kiwanis club. I doubled the recipe to serve 50 people and the crock pot was scraped clean! "Oh MY GOD" was the most popular comment. Super taste and consistancy. Easy to make if you are patient and do the stirring. Definately a keeper! I did change one thing, I used milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet chips as that is my preference.
This is extremely easy to make, but I'd suggest cutting the receipe in half (at least) as I filled a 32 ounce jar with the results of the standard ingredients. This yields a dark chocolate tasting fudge (rather than milk chocolate)and it's very sweet. Playing with the type of chocolate used will vary the taste I'm sure. Perhaps replacing the semi-sweet with milk chocolate would yield a taste closer to Smuckers rather than Saunders. This is a great hot fudge ice cream topping.
My mom would make this topping for cream puffs with vanilla ice cream. It was a special treat that I still like to make for special occasions. dselleck2000
