This is my slightly adapted recipe for Hot Chocolate Fudge Sundae as taken from her book, Summer Collection, which still remains one of my very favourite cookbooks.
Delia has the ability to bring the unusual and unique to the table but with simple, easy to follow instructions which makes all of her recipes appear achievable…..and it’s this skill that has made her one the most popular celebrity chefs (or cooks) of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Such is power and popularity, that in the wake of her Summer Collection book release, supermarkets and deli’s all over the land sold out of sun-dried tomatoes and “muffin” tins! I have ALL of her cookbooks and they are the most thumbed books in my vast cookbook collection.
The beauty about the basic ice cream is that if you don’t have an ice cream maker, then you can make this by hand as it is a “no churn” style, and uses a very simple cream and condensed milk base, which means no egg custard to worry about.
The sauce for this sundae is also super easy to make and although Delia suggests using dark chocolate, I quite fancied a milk chocolate fudge sauce for my ice cream delight, so that’s exactly what I used, but the choice is yours of course.
DO give the recipe I have shared below a go, it’s decadently sweet and fudgy with a nutty crunch and it’s very easy to make.
