Peanut Butter Hot Fudge has a rich and thick peanut butter and chocolate flavor that tastes amazing on top of ice cream and other desserts.
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, coarsly chopped
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- pinch salt
- In a medium sauce pan heat the cream over medium heat until it starts to steam.
- Pull the pan off the heat and add the chopped chocolate and peanut butter. Let the mixture sit for 30 seconds.
- Whisk the cream, chocolate, and peanut butter together until the mixture is smooth.
- Add the powdered sugar and mix until smooth.
- Add the vanilla and salt and mix to combine.
- Allow the mixture to cool for about 10 minutes before serving warm. The mixture will thicken slightly as it cools and will be a nice texture when it hits the cold ice cream.
- Store any extras in an air-tight container in the fridge and reheat to warm before serving again.
- Sometimes my powder sugar will be a bit clumpy which isn't the dream. I've found it best to sift it into the bowl of liquid chocolate and cream while whisking or to have the powdered sugar in a separate bowl and then slowly pour the chocolate mixture into the powdered sugar while whisking. You'll get a smoother product by doing one of these methods opposed to just plopping in the powdered sugar and then stirring it in.
