Hot Fudge Sauce

My friend served this with ice cream and brownies earlier this week and it was delicious!  She was gracious enough to share the recipe with me.  Enjoy!

Mix together in a sauce pan:
2 cups of sugar
1/3 cup of cocoa

1 can of evaporated milk

Bring to a slow boil, as mixture starts to thicken stir often to keep from burning.

1/2 cube of butter

Stir until butter melts and bring back to a slow boil until mixture gets a little thicker.  Take off heat and let stand until cool enough to eat.
Store in an air tight container and it will reheat in micro several more  times before it goes sugary.

Crepe Inspired Waffles

Here's a recipe that seems to be crepe-ish (okay I know that's not a real word).  It uses more eggs and butter than the average waffle.  I found something similar on Pinterest and altered it to suit our family's needs.

1 3/4 cups oat flour (I ground about 2 1/4 cups of whole oats into the flour)
1 T baking powder
1 T sugar
Mix in a bowl.

3 eggs
1/2 to 1 cube of butter
1 1/2 cup almond milk
Mix these in a separate bowl.

Combine all ingredients.  Cook in a waffle iron sprayed with Pam until desired crispness.  Spray waffle iron before you put more batter in each time or it might stick.  Makes around 5 large waffles.  They are very fluffy and not dense at all (due to the eggs).

Next time I will try using some coconut oil instead of part of the butter perhaps.

By the way, the original recipe had white flour instead of oats, regular milk instead of almond milk, and more butter than I used.
