This is one of those recipes you should just memorize. It is so easy, comes together quickly and is made from pantry staples. If you have a surprise visitor, you can impress them by whipping up a batch and drizzling it over ice cream. There isn't much better! This would also make a great icing drizzled over a bundt cake. It is also tasty licked off fingers, or spoons, or spatulas or the whisk...
I am posting it tonight as a tease for what is to come tomorrow. (I'll give you a hint, it isn't ice cream or bundt cake... or fingers or spoons!) I can't wait to show you what we had this with. Ok, I can wait a little bit longer. Come back tomorrow to find out!
This recipe started as a fudge frosting recipe that my aunt Marlene taught me. I made a minor adjustment to make it a little looser. I will have to post her original recipe sometime. It is perfect for spreading over rice krispie treats or brownies.
