If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve heard me talk about my mother, L.J.
“L.J”. is short for Lois Jean. I didn’t know what her real name was until I entered grade school.
I adored her. She was blonde, beautiful, smart, funny, irreverent, and a fantastic cook.
I grew up in Louisville, where cooking is an art form. My mother was legendary. Our friends and relatives still rave about her dinner parties and holiday buffets.
I’ve posted many of her recipes, the most popular ones on my blog. I’ll be posting her Easter Menu in a day or so.
But her Hot Fudge Sauce… She used to tell me it didn’t have any calories. I desperately wanted to believe her. It is so darn good!
I think of her every day and wish she were still around to help me tend my bees, garden and cook.
She lives on through her recipes though. Especially the one for Hot Fudge Sauce. 🙂
Honey Hot Fudge Sauce
1 12 ounce bag of semisweet chocolate chips . (L.J. used Nestle’s but I like Ghirardelli.)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup honey
Place the cream into a microwave glass bowl. Add the chips and microwave for 2 minutes. (L.J. used a double boiler. Feel free to use one too!)
Remove from microwave and stir.
Add honey and stir.
Refrigerate until cold or reheat for hot fudge sauce.
Serve over ice cream. Whipped cream may be added, but is superfluous. 🙂
