1 Minute Microwave Hot Choc Fudge Peanut Sauce

Okay, look away now if you're on a diet or avoiding sugar.

I've been making this sauce for a few years now (probably more times than I should have) especially when I have a little bit of cream that needs using up. Its either this chocolate fudge sauce or I use the cream in a pasta dish. Either way, I probably shouldn't.

Nigella Lawson's Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Sundae
This is a sauce based on Nigella's Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Sundae Recipe but instead of worrying about cooking it over the stove top in a saucepan, I use a microwave suitable dish and cook it for 1 minute. Yes, that's all folks. In one minute (60 seconds) you can have this delicious, rich, thick, chocolate-y, gooey, fudge-y sauce. You can pour it over ice cream, as I have done in this Banana Split OR, if you're really naughty, you can put in the fridge to harden and its the perfect recipe for truffles. Take small pieces of mixture, roll into a ball and roll in cocoa, icing sugar, crushed nuts or coconut. You can also omit the peanut butter and add nutella with a sprinkling of chocolate hazelnuts. You could also allow to set slightly and ice a cake with it.

Whichever way you have this, enjoy, in moderation of course. (Do as I say, not as I do!)

  1. Anne this looks SO GOOD I could eat it off the page!!! And so easy. This is a PERFECT recipe when you need a delicious but fast hot fudge sauce. I need to make some today for a dessert I'm serving. Oh YUM!!!!

  2. Thanks for the warning...LOL! I am going to make this to share with family and friends so I don't eat all of it!

  3. OMG this is sinfully delish and so easy. Just pinned it for those moments when I need a sinful chocolate fix! ;)

  4. Anne, even though I am a health freak I could give into this sinfully treat! In moderation of course lol

  5. We can never get the heating right, but I will try it in the microwave oven as you suggested. Looks delicious!

  6. Oh my... I really shouldn't be looking at this recipe right now, so close to lunch time... very tempted... might be a banana split for lunch today!!! Or maybe after school today to celebrate first day back... or maybe both lol... thanks, Melissa.

  7. Omg that looks AMAZING. I would probably make it and just eat it out of the bowl with a spoon. I am very disappointed that there is no chocolate in my pantry right now.
