Though it’s hot when you spoon it over your ice cream, this ridiculously simple Snickers hot fudge hardens as it cools, turning a simple bowl of vanilla ice cream into a celebration of nougatey goodness. All you need for this recipe is a Snicker’s bar. If you’re not one for peanuts, you can also make a simple hot fudge using Milky Way candy bars.
As nice as it is to go Cold Stone on your ice cream, mixing in hunks of candy and fruits, I totes prefer this melted fudge over giant nuggets of Snickers. It wraps itself ever so nicely around the ice cream and makes for a clever dessert.
- 3 Snickers bars, chopped into several large pieces
- 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
Place Snickers bars into a small, microwave-safe bowl. Zap in the microwave for 15-20 seconds, stir. Return to the microwave and zap for an additional 30-40 seconds, until the Snickers are soft and melty. Spoon warm over heaps of vanilla ice cream. Top with chopped peanuts.
