Can you define self-control? Want me to tell you about it?? Of course I will!

Self-control is when you have a saucepan filled with a creamy and smooth Chocolate Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Sauce, staring you down, but you don’t dare touch it because you have to take a photo of the delicious mess you just made.

AND it’s not just one photo. Oh no. It’s like 116 photos, which can take up to 1 hour, or so. That’s self-control.
Staring at this chocolate hot fudge sauce for one hour before taking a lick! I did that. I really did. I always do. It’s SO hard! BUT, I have self-control. And discipline. YAY ME!

I joined the Chocolate Party again this month, and my lovely friend Roxana from Roxana’s Home Baking challenged me to a Chocolate-Peanut Butter concoction. Lucky us!! Isn’t that the best flavor combo, everrr?

I swear, I can’t believe I didn’t start eating peanut butter up until I was 20-some years old. Idiot. I missed out on all that choco-pb goodness for 20 years! I will never get back those years!!

I’m making up for it by spooning this amazing sauce on top of everything I find – ice cream, cake, bananas, apple slices… Asparagus, too. EW! Just kidding. That would be gross. I *think*.

Honestly? This fudge sauce is some serious business. Once you taste this, you will never, ever go back to store-bought stuff.

Also? I make mine with fat-free sweetened condensed milk to save a few calories. BUT, does it really make a difference when you eat half of it? In one sitting?? It’s like ordering a Big Mac with a diet Pepsi. Eh. My mind feels better knowing that I used fat-free-something.

      Hi! Yep, same here! I love this stuff over ice cream, too! The best way to reheat is to do it over medium-low heat on the stovetop. Microwave would be risky – chocolate burns quite quickly in the microwave – but you can do it, just make sure to check on it every 10 seconds, and stir. 🙂

    I need this fudge sauce…like NOW Kate! I’d pour it over any and everything 🙂 Pinned and shared on FB girl!

    I always use lo fat ingredients where I can too, I ma not sure if it really counts in recipes like this though 😉 I would eat too much also )

    This is brilliant, Kate. I would just set it out on the counter and kip everything within reach into it!

    Can I just stick my finger into that last photo? Kudos to your self control. I wouldn’t be able to do it.

  8. Valerie

    I lost all self control just by looking at the photos. (I grabbed a square of chocolate and dipped it into a jar of peanut butter!). Thanks! 😀

  9. sally @ sallys baking addiction
