We are so excited to share this absolutely delectable recipe with you today! Our fabulous http://barefootwine.com/our-wines/red-wines/merlot">Barefoot Merlot meets intense dark chocolate in this rich, velvety hot fudge sauce, guaranteeing to make everything that it’s drizzled on better.
Wine and chocolate make up the most perfect pairing and if you’ve never attempted hot fudge sauce from scratch before --- well, you’ll never believe how easy it is! Just a few simple ingredients and you’ll have perfect chocolately sauce in a matter of minutes.
First, finely chop your chocolate. You’ll want to break out the good stuff for this recipe! We used 60% bittersweet, which made for a very rich dark chocolate fudge sauce.
Next, throw your chocolate in a pot along with some heavy cream. A third of a cup should do the trick!
Along with light corn syrup. Be sure to buy light corn syrup and not dark corn syrup for this specific recipe!
Add a tablespoon of really good quality cocoa. The darker the better! Followed by a fourth of a cup of granulated sugar….
And finally – a pinch of sea salt! Now mix all this goodness together and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
