For lunch today, the kids and I sat around the table with a big bowl of strawberries and a little bowl of Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge. I make no apologies.

Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate (chopped)
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Stir together cocoa powder, brown sugar, corn syrup, cream, salt, and half of the chopped chocolate in a saucepan. Cook over moderate heat, stirring, until chocolate is melted. Cook mixture at a low boil for 5 minutes.

Remove pan from heat, add remaining chocolate, butter and vanilla, and stir until smooth.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge. (I am using a mason jar)
