We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the occasion than with homemade vanilla ice cream and the most divine fudge topping you’ve ever had.
Here’s a little chocolate fudge topping history…
This fudge recipe makes up one fourth of a layered frozen dessert that my Grandma makes. It’s called Uncle Albert’s, and to my knowledge there never was an Uncle Albert in my family. Basically, I don’t know who this “Albert” guy is, but I love this dude. This recipe has always been a family favorite. My brother goes insane over it and now I’ve gone and made Bill and my in-laws fall madly in love, too.
Basically, it’s a layer of finely crushed Ore0′s/butter, vanilla ice cream, hot fudge topping, and then to top it off – Cool Whip. I know what you’re thinking. It doesn’t sound all that special, but you have to eat it to believe it. Obviously, it’s this fudge topping that makes it completely out of this world.
I’ll consider sharing that recipe with you… someday. Maybe. Well, for sure. Sorry to torture you like that. It might be awhile until I make it again. It makes such a huge batch, and we do actually eat all of the food you see on this site. How about this, lovelies – if you want that mysterious Uncle Albert’s recipe, email me at Rachael@simplyfreshcooking.com and I’ll get it to you at my earliest convenience. K?
<3 you, Albert (xo).
Ok, back to the fudge topping (I can feel some bullet point magic coming on):
- It’s easy to make. 10 minutes, in fact.
- No preservatives —–>Winning.
- It’s super decadent, with kind of a “caramel-esque” quality to it. You just have to try it.
Drizzle it on ice cream, stick your face in it, eat it with a spoon, do whatever you want
with it. Just make it.
Grab a spoon and cheers to the next year! I’m not going anywhere…
- 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 stick salted butter
- 3 semi-sweet chocolate baking squares
- Place all ingredients in a large pot over high heat (there aren’t many ingredients, but a large pot will help to prevent the chocolate from splattering everywhere as it boils). Bring to a boil and stir the mixture constantly for 8-10 minutes. Cover and refrigerate any unused fudge topping.
