This was my first time making this hot fudge. I've only had one other vegan hot fudge at a vegan ice cream shop in New York and it was delicious, so I had high expectations.
This hot fudge gets the job done. Our brownie hot fudge sundaes were incredible. While the hot fudge wasn't quite as thick as non-vegan hot fudge, it was still a satisfying treat.Accessibility:
This recipe is both easy to make and inexpensive.Ease of Preparation:
This recipe is quick and easy. You can make it ahead of time and heat it up in the microwave, if necessary.Non-vegan friendliness:
Though Simon notes that the fudge "is missing the consistency that I'm looking for" in a classic hot fudge, everyone at dinner last night seemed both uncomfortably full and unquestionably sated by the end of the night. The hot fudge is a great sundae topping regardless of it's thickness. That said, I'll definitely make this again with a few adjustments and report back on any changes in thickness.
