Malt Fudge Sauce

Malt Fudge Sauce

Step 1

Combine the chocolate, ovaltine, and salt in medium bowl.

Step 2

Combine the glucose, molasses, sugar, and heavy cream in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and stir intermittently while bringing to a boil over high heat. The moment it boils, pour it into the bowl holding the chocolate. Let sit for 1 full minute.

Step 3

Slowly, slowly begin to whisk the mixture. then continue, increasingly the vigor of your whisking every 30 seconds, until the mixture is glossy and silky-smooth. This will take 2 to 4 minutes, depending on your speed and strength. You can use this sauce at this point or store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks; do not freeze.
