I can’t usually get my hands on good unsweetened chocolate and usually it’s very expensive (Lindt at $3.00 for 50grams—ouch!) so I converted the Snowball Hot Fudge Sauce from RHC to use bittersweet chocolate (58%).  I think the sauce is comparable to the original—maybe a hint sweeter but easily adjusted by reducing sugar.  Texture seems much the same—a thick, sticky ganache…

I eliminated the use of unsweetened:
1.  Increase chocolate by 3 oz.
2.  Reduce butter by 1 oz.
3.  I used 10 T of sugar, but may go slightly less next time ... I prefer a less sweet sauce…try 8 T?

Follow remainder of recipe as written.  This is a great sauce—it does stiffen in the fridge and I just sampled some out of the freezer—very firm but easily scoopable with a spoon!  I think it would be downright deadly swirled into homemade ice cream (just so it’s marbled, but not homogeneous—upcoming baking project!)

Rose’s homemade hot fudge is amazing, and your sub sounds perfect.  Love, love, love the idea of putting it in ice cream, and so will my thirteen year old!  smile
