Hot Fudge Sauce
Low Fat Recipe
This hot fudge sauce, sans cocoa butter (cocoa powder is used instead), has a slightly powdery finish and less richness than its higher-fat counterparts, but it will certainly satisfy chocolate cravings.
5 tablespoons warm water
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder *
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon arrowroot , mixed with 2 tablespoons water
Pour the water, cocoa powder and sugar into a small saucepan and stir over low heat until dissolved.
Remove from heat.
Stir in arrowroot mixture, return to the heat and whisk until thickened.
Remove from the heat and whisk until smooth.
*Highly Recommended: Dutch-process Organic Cocoa Powder
Unsweetened cocoa powder does not contain cocoa butter, and so has substantially less fat than chocolate.
