I'm looking for a good recipe to make a chocolate fudge/syrup style sauce that will not freeze solid when placed in the freezer, but rather retain its "liquid" consistency. It does not need to be runny when frozen, but I just do not want it to freeze.
I plan to add it into an ice cream cake so do not want it to solidify or become hard when I bite into the cake.
Any suggestions for something that would work well?
I tried something with chocolate, evaporated milk and butter and sugar, and although functional (ie: does not seem to freeze solid, but becomes taffy like), tastes way too buttery for me.
My recipe was something along the lines of:
1/2 cup butter 3 oz chocolate 2 cup sugar 350ml evaporated milk
Basically melt butter & chocolate, add sugar and milk and reduce to desired consistency. But like I said, although it works, it is way too buttery.
I would love to figure out a recipe that would allow me to do make something of a similar consistency, but with dairy free w/ dark chocolate (ie: no milk/butter). But I am not sure what gives the sauce the taffy consistency vs. freezing up. I immediately discounted any recipes that I saw which were water based due to the freezing/crystalizing issue.
