When we were traveling in Provence, France several years ago, we found vegan chocolate sauce in a local store and were pretty excited about it. So, we made this silly video — the first one I ever made on Instagram when we were limited to 15 seconds! — you might enjoy watching. I’m warning you. It’s pretty silly.
Anyway, I thought I’d gift you with a delicious recipe reprinted from The Joy of Vegan Baking.
CHOCOLATE FUDGE SAUCE
Perfect for making hot fudge sundaes!
1 tablespoon ground kudzu root
2 tablespoons water
1 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 cup non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dissolve the 1 tablespoon of kudzu into 2 tablespoons of water. Stir well to combine, and make sure it’s well dissolved.
Add the sugar, salt, and cocoa to a saucepan. Whisk these dry ingredients thoroughly before adding the milk, vanilla, and dissolved kudzu. Stir over medium heat. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and either serve hot or allow to cool. You can easily heat it up in the microwave anytime you want hot fudge sauce.
Yield: 1-1/2 cups
Let me know below in the comments how it turned out!
