There is no grand story as to how this was created. I had a craving for ice cream covered in chocolate sauce and a smattering of green pistachios, right after a baking failure, and so this chocolate fudge sauce was created. Golden Syrup should be quite easy to find (it’s usually near the pancake syrups, honeys, etc. At the grocery store). If you can’t find it, light corn syrup or light agave nectar will work well, too. Although Dark Chocolate with 70% cocoa content may seem a little too dark for any milk chocolate lover’s liking, that is not the case–I find it works perfectly, especially since it is diluted a bit by the cream and the other ingredients. 70% cocoa content is ideal, but if you don’t have that on hand, use whatever you have– I wouldn’t go below 64% cocoa content, though.
