Hot (carob) Fudge Sauce
I bought the kids (and us) a treat - ice cream. So, I decided to make sundaes, and cooked up a batch of hot carob fudge to go on top. Obviously the low-carb/good-carb thing is not going well here and we are suffering the consequences, so be prepped to see less sweets and more, well, not sweets.
1 and 1 half cans sweet and condensed milk
2 cups of carob chips (or chocolate)
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 Tablespoon vanilla
Melt carob in the sweet and condensed milk in a double boiler (my doubler boiler is a glass bowl on top of a big pot). Stir frequently until melted, but do not allow to boil. Once melted, stir in butter and vanilla. You could also stir in some other flavours like coffee, mint, orange, liquers, etc.
Let cool a little and use as topping for ice cream. This would also be good on waffles, or, if you add more butter (about a full stick) and allow to cool, would make good filling for the inside of a cake.
