Hot Fudge Sauce

Did you go make those brownies I told you about? Good... now go make this delicious hot fudge, grab some ice cream (and a spoon!) and make yourself a Sundae. It's hot outside and you deserve it.

Hot Fudge Sauce
Makes About 2 1/2 Cups

1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1/2 cup light corn syrup*
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
9 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. In a heavy saucepan, combine the cream, butter, corn syrup and sugar over medium-low heat. Stir constantly and cook until the butter melts and sugar dissolves (about three minutes).

2. Add the chocolate and sire until melted and smooth (about two minutes).

3. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in vanilla. Allow to cool slightly before using. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. To re-heat, spoon the desired amount into a microwave-safe container and microwave for 20 seconds, then stir. If needed, continue to re-heat in 20-second 10-second intervals.

*Replace corn syrup with brown rice syrup if desired.
