Ingredients:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup roughly chopped black cherries, pits removed

Directions:

1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa and flour with a whisk.
2. Add milk, butter, and vanilla, and cherries.
3. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring continuously, and boil 2-3 minutes or until thickened.
4. This thickens a bit more as it cools, but you can store it in the fridge and warm up how much you want, when you want it.

Verdict: Delicious! Especially with some additional fresh cherries thrown on top of the gigantic scoops of ice cream. Good stuff.
Husband’s take: I wouldn’t know. He loves all things traditional, and this isn’t so much traditional. More for me.
Changes I would make: None!
Difficulty: Super easy. Especially if you have a cherry pitter. I don’t. There were some red-stained fingers and messiness involved in this process.

  7. OK – so I’ve just gone through the whole week of hot fudge. My mouth is watering, my stomach is growling and I just put on 10 pounds! It all looks absolutely wonderful but I think my favorite is this one – Black Forest Hot Fudge. One of my favorite sweets is chocolate covered cherries, so this comes close. What a great series of posts! Fun Fun!

  8. WOW – when are you doing another fudge week? I want in! This fudge will be fabulous in the black forest cheesecake recipe I’m working on for the Crisco Nation Pie Contest.
    PS – Rachel’s w/o the icky extra ‘a’ ROCK!!
