No Guilt Hot Fudge Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

Per the Galloping Gourmet (Graham Kerr) this makes a thick rich sauce and he's right on with this description. The sauce thickens well, with a nice gloss and remains pourable even when chilled. I've made numerous batches of this recipe to dip strawberries and orange slices and to top that boring fat-free frozen yogurt. Truth be know, I often sneak a spoonful straight-up while browsing the fridge. ;-)

for consistency issues i use a little cornstarch. If you don't like cornstarch i would think a small amount of gelatin would work to thicken as well. try adding some cognac for an adult version.
