Chocolate Fudge Sundae
Prepares: 4 servings
 
  • Preparation time: 15 minutes

  • Ingredients
  • For the sundaes
  • 240ml (8 fl oz) double/whipping cream (1 cup)
  • 8 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • grated chocolate for sprinkling

  • For the chocolate fudge sauce
  • 70g (2½ oz) butter (5 tbsp)
  • 85g (3 oz) caster/superfine sugar (⅓ cup)
  • 85g (3 oz) dark muscovado sugar/soft dark brown sugar (⅓ cup)
  • 180ml (6 fl oz) single/table cream (¾ cup)
  • 55g (2 oz) cocoa powder, sifted (½ cup)

  • You will also need 4 sundae glasses


  1. Method
  2. For the sundaes
  3. Whip the cream until it just holds soft peaks and put to one side.

  4. For the chocolate fudge sauce
  5. Put the butter, sugars, and cream in a pan over a low heat until the butter has just melted, stirring now and again. Remove from the heat.

  6. Now stir in the cocoa powder and beat until the sauce is smooth and glossy. Keep it warm while putting together the rest of the sundaes. If it becomes too thick, just add a little boiling water.

  7. (Not all the sauce may be needed but it will keep refrigerated for up to two weeks. It will thicken as it cools and will eventually become solid, and it can be warmed through again to create a pouring sauce.)

  8. To assemble
  9. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the chocolate fudge sauce around the insides of each sundae glass.

  10. Add 2 scoops of ice cream to each glass.

  11. Then top each glass with a large dollop of cream.

  12. Now slowly spoon 2 tablespoons of the chocolate sauce over the top, letting it run through the cream and ice cream.

  13. Decorate with a little grated chocolate.

  14. Serve immediately.
