Cook the Book Fridays: Salted-Chocolate Hot Fudge Sundaes from Everyday Dorie

Bowl of ice cream with Dorie Greenspan hot chocolate sauceThis week’s recipe for Cook the Book Fridays comes from Dorie Greenspan’s latest cookbook, Everyday Dorie and was just what was needed on the second Thursday of the school-year-like-no-other. Salted Chocolate Hot Fudge Sundae. Is there a better combination of words?

The recipe calls for making your own salted chocolate “bits” (chocolate, melted and mixed with salt then set and broken into pieces) but I added a hint of salt to the hot chocolate sauce instead – I like my sundaes simple…

Ice cream topped with Dorie Greenspan hot fudge sauce, almonds and sprinkles… with sprinkles (actually, we call then 100s and 1000s in Australia!)

Now, we’ve made a version of this chocolate sauce before, from Baking Chez Moi, for topping profiteroles, and I remember from then that this was a dangerously good recipe (as in, you could totally drink the lot…).

This was the perfect antidote to a long (four day!) week!

Get the recipe for Dorie Greenspan’s Salted-Chocolate Hot Fudge Sundaes on page 297 of Everyday Dorie.

  1. So fun to hear of the name for Sprinkles. I was eyeing all the sugar toppings in my cabinet and definitely had to use restraint from adding “jimmies” and “sprinkles” …at least for the first serving lol. Your photo is a party in a bowl !

  2. I like the name 100’s and 1000’s which is a new item for me. Was there anything not to like about this sundae. I agree that the preparation could have been simplified. This is a very big sundae (for two, Dorie says). It was too, too much for me. It will be easy to scale back the size of the sundae because it’s delicious and I want to make it again. Nice photo.
