OK so, how much do you love hot fudge?
If your answer is ‘I don’t like hot fudge,’ then we really shouldn’t be friends.
I mean, c’mon. Who doesn’t like hot fudge?
Anyways, that’s beside the point.
Back to the point: hot fudge is awesome sauce.
No literally, this hot fudge is “awesomesauce,” as named by its creator, Meg the Boho Mama.
Mother to two adorable twins – Ruthie and Afton.
Love that lady.
Love this sauce.
You, will, too.
So readers of my blog know I’ve been on a serious simple kick that has weened most of my ingredient lists down to a limited number of items. And this, in my opinion, is awesome. I mean, who wants to use 20 ingredients when they can use 10 – and even better if they’re healthy.
Am I right. I mean, am I right?!
Speaking of simple, this sauce only has five ingredients. Count e’m FIVE: coconut milk, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and vanilla. That’s it. Another perk? It’s completely vegan and way healtheir than your traditional hot fudge sauce, loaded with butter, melted chocolate and who knows what else.
But the best part? This sauce tastes exactly the same as the other stuff – perhaps even better. Yeah, I said it.
Vegan Hot Fudge and Chocolate Sauce
yields 1 jar | adapted from bohomama
1 c full-fat coconut milk
1/3 – 1/2 c cocoa powder
5 T sugar or other sweetener (or to taste)
1/2 t vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Method | Heat the coconut milk and cocoa powder in a saucepan or a double boiler over medium heat to combine. Whisk in sugar, vanilla and salt. Pour into heat-safe container – like a pyrex bowl – to cool. Once it’s cooled, transfer into a glass jar and store in the fridge for up to a month. Pour on top of ice cream, fruit or eat straight from le jar.
Friends, I can’t even tell yo how awesome this sauce is.
It’s creamy, chocolatey and oh-so fudgy.
It really does taste like hot fudge, but more sophisticated, which is a step up in my humble opinion.
I wasted no time pouring this over a delicious bowl of *cookie dough* *cough* ice cream. But if you’re strictly vegan, put this over soy or coconut ice cream for an equally delicious treat. I haven’t tried it with the vegan variety yet but will surely do so in the future.
All I know is this sauce is delicious.
Try it for yourself. Yo.
