Dark Chocolate Fudge Sauce


Hot Fudge Sauce Tall Blonde Cookbook Recipe

Perhaps the best dark chocolate sauce on the planet.  This recipe comes from America's Test Kitchen and I cannot find any room for improvement.  It is perfection in a bowl and simple to make. Makes 10 servings.

3 oz. unsweetened dark chocolate, chopped

In a sauce pan:
2/3 cup whole milk, do not use lower fat milk
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tea. salt
        Cook until sugar is melted and boiling
1/3 cup cocoa powder
        Added to boiling milk, whisk until fully incorporated
        Remove from heat
        Add chopped dark chocolate
        Stir until melted
4 Tbl. unsalted butter
1 tea. good quality vanilla extract
        Add to hot chocolate mix
        Get ready to serve.

Refrigerate in sealed container any unused portion, although hey, I cannot imagine there will be much left.  Can be reheated in microwave in future servings.
