Fluff Hot Fudge 

Yup.  Another one.  Another easy-peasy, throw-it-together-in-five-minutes-and-enjoy recipe.

What can we say?  It's summer cupcakes.  We're too hot for heavy sifting and whisking.

Er, yeah, ok, so we're hot because we've been walking to and from the ice cream stand in the blazing sun.  But we can't be blamed.  Really. 

Have you been to Dairy Joy!? 

That soft serve is laced with narcotics.  It has to be.  How else can you explain the insane cravings?  It's addictive.  We can't be held accountable.

Nuh uh.  We're innocent bystanders.

Although, we do have one small beef with the soft serve stand.  You know, aside from making us completely addicted to their dairy magical deliciousness.

Uh, they close at 8pm.


Seriously.  Seriously?!!?  What about those post dinner dessert cravings that can only be quelled by the marble swirl pixie in a cake cone?   With the hot fudge?!

Basically we have a soft serve, hot fudge, Dairy Joy-fulness curfew.

Fine.  FINE.  We're taking things into our own hands.

We're making our own hot fudge.  Oh yes.  Oh yes we are.

And we're lacing it with marshmallow fluff.  How's that for some summertime baking?!

Take that Dairy Joy.  You go ahead and close at 8pm.

This would be excellent on my homemade vanilla ice cream.

I really want to make this, but I don't have enough cream. Any chance I could use something else? I have skim milk... haha

Hey Marissa! Ideally you should use all cream to get that delicious texture, but if you're in a pinch, we'd say use as much cream as you have and use milk for the rest.
