[Hot Fudge Week] Day Three: Mocha Hot Fudge

Coffee? Good. Chocolate? Good. Coffee with chocolate? Better. This might be my favorite day of Hot Fudge Week. Although, I do love traditional, and black forest was good for summer time. Tomorrow’s version is a winner too! I guess I better just have a little of each.

I took some of this hot fudge and mixed it up with ice-cold milk for an instant homemade frappuccino. Perfect alternative to coffee during this hot weather we’ve been having.

Okay, so maybe I had it after I had my usual morning coffee. Who’s counting?

Mocha Hot Fudge
makes 2 cups

1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
4 Tbsp espresso powder
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa and flour, and espresso powder with a whisk.
2. Add milk, butter, and vanilla.
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: If you’re a coffee fan, you’ll love this one. It is so delicious and the coffee flavor really comes through. If you aren’t such a coffee fan, try adding just a bit of espresso powder (maybe a teaspoon or one tablespoon) to deepen the flavor of the traditional hot fudge.
Husband’s take: He only tasted a bit of this to tell me that the coffee flavor came through strong enough. He liked it though! But as I’ve said a hundred times, my hubs loves all things traditional and always gravitated towards the traditional version.
Changes I would make: None.
Difficulty: Super duper easy.
