Day Three – Completion of the Chocolate Covered Fruit dessert.
I’ve made my brownies in a 9 inch and 6 inch round pans to give it this tiered effect.
The day that you are going to serve this you’ll want to make your homemade hot fudge sauce. This hot fudge takes about an hour and a half to make, so plan accordingly.
Once you have made this hot fudge, you may never want to buy it in a jar again. Who needs all that extra stuff? Polycarbonate 60? What is that? And nobody needs High Fructose Corn syrup in their diet.
The great thing about this recipe is that it makes a quart and can be stored in your fridge. I placed my leftovers in a mason jar and put it in the fridge. Hey, if Ben and Jerry make this hot fudge in their shops, then you know it’s good!
I hope you enjoy this decadent dessert. I’m sure your guest will be impressed with this Tower of Chocolate Covered Fruit! Just dipping the fresh fruit into the fudge was like Heaven to me!
