With two ingredients and thirty seconds, you can make this decadent Easy Chocolate Sauce, perfect for serving over ice cream, brownies, and whatever else your heart desires.
Hey, so you know those times when you find yourself desperately reaching for that pint of ice cream in the freezer, but it’s been A Day, and you really need something more than just ice cream? Like, ice cream’s a great healer of many things, but some days call for the big guns.
Some days call for ice cream + chocolate sauce.
And if you’re like me, trying, sometimes succeeding, to eat healthy most of the time, you probably don’t just keep chocolate sauce in your fridge. You could whip out a pot and make a traditional homemade hot fudge sauce on the stove–it’s pretty easy. You should do it sometime. BUT there’s a chance that if this is a day that requires ice cream and chocolate sauce, it is not a day for cooking.
So for those days, here’s a two-ingredient fudge sauce recipe you can make in the microwave in 30 seconds. If you have cream or milk, some chocolate chips, and a functioning microwave, there’s nothing standing between you and a hot fudge sundae.
And it’s going to be a superb hot fudge sundae. Technically this easy chocolate sauce is a chocolate ganache, but it’s chocolatey, amazing, and so there for you when you need it. It starts out warm and gooey, and by the time your ice cream is all melty and the chocolate has cooled a little bit, it thickens up and becomes almost fudge-like pooled at the bottom of your bowl (or mug, or whatever ice cream dispensing container you are eating out of).
What I’m saying is that basically, it’s heaven, and after the week we’ve just had (seriously, F this week), we deserve oodles of it.
