CHOCLAT SIN #19
WHEN I WAS A KID IN THE CITY, IN THE SUMMERTIME, after supper, (we didn't call it dinner then) we ran out of the house to catch a breeze...AND... We hung around, waiting for that sound, the bell on the truck, The Good Humor Man! That was a sound of daily joy...that beckoned with frozen enticements.
Nowadays the bells are mostly silenced because someone in the crowd gets a headache from too much ding-a-ling. But today, as usual, I'm ready to ring that bell! Another Wednesday, another chocolate reward...bring that good humor on...Chocolate just keeps on giving!!
WHISKEY- HOT FUDGE SAUCE (gotcha!)
8 oz. unsweetened chocolate baking squares
1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
3 tbls. Southern Comfort
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt
Melt chocolate and butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Add sugar, and cook, stirring constantly, until heated and sugar is dissolved (do not boil). Remove from heat, stir in whiskey, vanilla, and salt. Use immediately or cover and chill for up to 2 weeks. To reheat, microwave sauce, at High, for 15/30 seconds, stirring, until warm.
Layer sauce into serving dish, add any flavor ice-cream, (everything works!), more sauce, sweetened whipped cream. Top with sprinkles, for nostalgia's sake! Ring that Bell!
