Here at Babble, one of our most viewed posts of all times is Sophistimom’s Hot Chocolate in 99 Seconds, which is a really simple and brilliant rendition of a microwaved ganache. Her snappy approach to hot fudge inspired me today when I had a neighbor over for lunch. We’d just eaten some spicy Indian food, so a cool creamy snack was in order. But, I had less than a minute to pull something clever together. So, I grabbed a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a scoop of Nutella, zapped them together in the microwave, and holy hazelnuts! what resulted was nothing short of Nutella perfection.
This recipe is not unlike a ganache. The cream from the ice cream melts with the cocoa-goodness of Nutella to create a shiny, soft, and pourable hot fudge sauce. It’s perfect for ice cream. Better yet, it can be made in under a minute with ingredients you probably already have on hand. Score.
Nutella Hot Fudge Sauce
- 1/4 cup Nutella
- 1 large scoop vanilla ice cream
Place ingredients in a small, microwave-safe container. Nuke for 30 seconds. Stir together until creamy. Microwave for an additional 30 seconds, if needed. Pour over ice cream & enjoy!
