Hot Fudge

It took me a long time to post this recipe because I actually ended up doing a face-off between two recipes. That totally tracks, right? I got the recipe below from Matthew Amster-Burton in a bonus episode of Spilled Milk, though it was also mentioned in Episode 507. It’s originally by Erin Nesbit. And then, a few months later, I tried this vintage recipe from Occidental Hotel and… it paled in comparison. Erin Nesbit’s recipe, which to me is now Matthew Amster-Burton’s recipe, is by far the best hot fudge you’ll make! 

4 ½ oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped 
5 ½ oz. white sugar 
1/8 tsp. salt 
1 Tbsp. lactose-free butter 
1 cup lactose-free cream 
½ tsp. vanilla extract 

Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and cook on high 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until mostly melted (I did this in a double-boiler). Transfer to a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-low heat and stir in sugar, salt, and butter. Stir in cream, a little at a time, until smooth. Heat through, without boiling, then remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Serve warm, but store in the refrigerator.
