(1/2 stick) butter, cut into pieces
1 1/2 cups
granulated white sugar
light corn syrup
pure vanilla extract
I only let the sauce cook for about 6 minutes....the sugar was melted and it was about as thick as I wanted it (and I didn't want chocolate taffy!). Very easy and just what I wanted for my peppermint ice cream!
very tasty by itself when warm, but put it on cold ice cream and it turns to taffy like someone said. I followed the recipe to the tee. Maybe the ten minutes was too long to cook. Would love to know how to solve this problem.
I followed the recipe to the T, and I even put a candy thermometer in the pot out of curiosity to see what the temp would end up being after 10 minutes (it was 228). The taste is great, but the texture is more like taffy. My daugher reaffirmed this when she said, "It's like eating chocolate laffy taffy." Maybe if I had cooked it for less than 5 minutes...? Any suggestions what went wrong?
I love anything Ghiradelli... I love that their products are 100% natural; I am not a fan of any artificial additives. Ever since I found out that artificial vanilla was made from petroleum byproducts, I have been more discerning what I cook for my family. This is a wonderful sauce!
The recipe worked fine for me. Made to accompany dessert at Christmas dinner. Delicious, and my dad (who never cooks) asked for the recipe. I made the sauce the night before, let it cool, then put it in a bowl covered with Saran Wrap, in the fridge overnight. Warmed up in microwave - a few minutes on high.
I followed the recipe and I had much higher expectations for this. It's really more like a chocolate syrup than hot fudge sauce. It was way too sweet for my liking and not what I would consider hot fudge sauce at all. I might consider trying it another time using evaporated milk instead of water. Also, the consistency was fine, but I was boiled very gently for 10 minutes due to other reviews.
Might be nice to add cocoa powder to get the full rich effect. Worked well for our waffle and pancake topping!
