Hot Fudge Sundae Day

One treat that me and my husband both enjoy is a hot fudge sundae and if we have been extra good we will get our selves an extra amount of hot fudge. Sure we love strawberry, caramel, and the other flavors but we prefer hot fudge. We must not be alone because today, July 25th, has been selected to give respect to the hot fudge sundae. One of the best parts of the hot fudge sundae is the cherry you find on top. 

The classic american Hot fudge sundaes have been served since 1906. The hot fudge sundae was invented by Clarence Clifton Brown. Brown owned the ice cream parlor C. C. Brown's ice cream parlor. The ice cream parlor since closed in 1996 So today enjoy a hot fudge sundae. 

To make perfect Hot Fudge Sundaes all you need is…
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate (5 1/2 ounces), chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Fresh or jarred cherries
Now that you have the ingredients, it is time to make the sundae:
Place chocolate in a bowl. Heat 1/2 of the cup cream with 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan. Bring to a slight simmer. Pour hot cream over chocolate and allow it to sit untouched for a minute. Stir until fully mixed. Then add in corn syrup and stir until smooth. Whisk the remaining 1/2 cup of cream until it is whipped and fluffy. Lastly, place 2 scoops of ice cream in two bowls. Spoon the sauce over the ice cream and garnish with whipped cream and a cherry.

One theory of why a sundae is called a sundae is that the sundae came during an era in time when Sunday Blue Laws existed during the late 19th century and early 20th century. During this time soda water could not  be sold on Sunday. Ice Cream Sodas were on the no serve list as well. So ice cream was a spotlight of the day. Testing different flavors with ice cream eventually led to the ice cream sundae.
