Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Sundae

Some recipes should come with a warning sign. Not because they are dangerous (at least not literally), but because they are highly addictive and can cause serious withdrawal symptoms, not to mention expanding waist issues. So a warning beforehand: this is one of those recipes! Yet I'm confident once you make it, you'll thank me again and again. Rating: 5 out of 5. If I could give a 6 out of 5, I would.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Sundae recipe: adapted from Nigella Lawson - Nigella Express

Ingredients:
- 200 ml (½ can) sweetened condensed milk (7oz)
- 100 gr milk or dark chocolate (3.5 oz)
- 100 gr smooth peanut butter (3.5 oz)
- 50 ml boiling water (¼ cup)
- salted peanuts, roughly chopped (optional)

Instructions:
- Put the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate and peanut butter into a saucepan and put it on the heat to melt, stirring occasionally. In about 2 minutes you should have your sauce ready. Add the boiling water to the sauce. The sauce may look too runny at this point, but it will thicken a lot as it cools.
- Get out four sundae glasses and put a few scoops of ice cream in each. Pour some chocolate peanut butter fudge sauce over each sundae and sprinkle with the salted peanuts. Hand them round and wait for people to weep with gratitude.


This is every chocolate and ice cream lover's fantasy!
I don't want to make this blog PG-13, but it is orgasmic.


I have made this recipe 5 - 6 times already (and I rarely remake things).
I'm just saying.


Watch and drool!

Umm... This looks amazing. I think I just may have to go make this right now, except I haven't even had dinner yet. Oh well? Dessert before dinner then!

I don't normally eat desserts ~ not trying to be healthy, just don't care that much. BUT, I do love, love, love peanut butter & chocolate together and adding ice cream? Genius :-) I do enjoy looking at your photos & recipes wishing I could actually bake...

I was just browsing one of her cookbooks at the library though I can't really afford to add to my bulging collection. This looks like a wonderful, cooling treat.
