What can you do with a bottle of chocolate sauce/ syrup other than use as topping? Make brownies!
Life has been a crazy rush, Alhamdulillah, that the blog is clearly taking a back seat. I am travelling home next week, and I am trying to see if I can squeeze in at least a couple of posts before I give the blog a break till we come back, In Sha Allah. The summer this time is really hot and uncomfortable. I read somewhere that this is the hottest the earth has become ever since mankind has come into existence. Allah knows best… We already had very hot months of May and June, and these two months aren’t going to be the easiest. It is a relief that we are going home, but back home, it has been raining very heavily. Rains are beautiful till a level but after that they start invoking a little fear in your hearts. The invocations prescribed during those times are quite heavy – from asking Allah to make the rain beneficial to asking Him to let it rain around us and not on us… SubhanAllah…
Coming to today’s recipe… My brother bought in a bottle of chocolate fudge sauce that was expiring in a couple of months. I usually don’t buy stuff like that, because we hardly use it in our routine. A bottle of Nutella, OK, but not fudge sauce… Hehe… As he got it in, I was wondering what I could do with it. Hersheys being the “baap” of chocolate syrup – though I used a local brand – I ended up searching on their website and found this link. I further found in the same link that the recipe was updated from what it used to be on the pack ages ago. I decided to try the old recipe. The only changes I made was to reduce the sugar and add a little salt. Lots of eggs, the whole bottle of syrup and just lots of gooeyness – that is how I would rate this recipe. It is soft inside, with a little caky texture. It reminded me of the sticky brownies I baked sometime ago. So if, like me, you end up with a near expiry bottle of chocolate syrup, you know what to do. 😉
