Chocolate fudge sauce making – part of our sauce collection for our “Ice Cream Bar”

Spent the last hour making our chocolate fudge sauce for our “Ice Cream Bar” next Saturday. To make it fudge we melt 70% coco solid free trade chocolate with a little bit of evaporated milk and a drop or two of cream. We thought we may be able to find a very good quality commercial sauce – but it seems all the chocolate sauces available in the UK are made to a budget. Some where OK but most tasted more of sugar than chocolate. So we felt we really had to make our own. The difference using pure high grade chocolate with no preservatives or additives is worth the extra 20 minutes it takes to make.
