Marshmallow Hot Fudge Sauce

Marshmallow Hot Fudge Sauce recipeI remember my parent’s having dinner parties when I was young. My mom would give me $5 to pretend to be a waitress and put the dishes in the dishwasher. It seemed so grown up and fun. If only I knew then how un-fun doing dishes really is, I would have asked for more money. One of the perks was getting to have the dessert that the grown ups were having. A lot of times my mom would make her famous chocolate sauce. She was making homemade Magic Shell long before Pinterest. I loved it, and since she didn’t make sweet things very often, it was a huge treat.

I also really like to make sundaes when people come over for dinner. Especially when I make something on the fancier side for dinner. I think that sundaes are fun and playful after a nice meal. I also really enjoy how easy they are to make. Buy some ice cream, make a little sauce, and you are ready to go. This Marshmallow Hot Fudge Sauce can be made a few days ahead of time and gently reheated when you are ready for dessert. I like to scoop the ice cream into the bowls that I am going to serve it in and freeze them until I am ready for them.

I get a lot of comments about coffee when I add it to chocolate recipes. Feel free to leave it out if you like, but coffee really brings out the flavor in chocolate. Sort of like like adding a pinch of salt to sweet things. It doesn’t taste like coffee, it just makes the chocolate more chocolate-y.
