Joe said that the Bosch® mixer is the answer to the world’s problems, and while that machine is a marvel, I have to beg to differ. I think chocolate may be the correct answer. Last night I made some fudge topping that as I told my sister Hannah, is not for the faint of heart.
My best success with self-control and fudge topping are: make it for a large group so that you can taste it as your making it, and scrape out the bowl when it’s gone. Otherwise it’s a dangerous thing to have around (no pun intended).
Tonight the y.g. is going to eat and then to church for games and dessert. (I forgot to mention in my last post that one strange thing about me is that I mostly make 2 kinds of cookies. The most loved is the peanut butter chocolate chip recipe I have had since jr. high school days when I made them at my teachers house for a school event.) I mixed up the dough last night and will bake them at the church tonight. That and ice cream and the hot fudge topping. Be still my beating heart.
Here’s the recipe in case you want to try it.
1 c. butter
1/2 c. cocoa powder
3 c. sugar
1 – 12 oz. can evap. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Mix first four ingredients together in saucepan. Bring to a boil and let it cook for 7 minutes, stirring constantly. Add vanilla. Put in blender for 2 minutes on high. Yield: 1 quart before tasting
It gets pretty thick when chilled so it’s nice to keep it in a microwaveable dish for quick zapping before serving.
Yes, I know that neither the Bosch® mixer nor chocolate solve the world’s problems. Can you say “facetious?” This post is for entertainment purposes only! The recipe is an added bonus.
