Ode to Nigella 28 – Hot Chocolate Sauce

This was delicious in that the coffee gave it a nice depth. As she does in Nigella Express, I served it up to the boys with a brownie and ice cream. I would say this is second on my list of favourite chocolate sauces. The top of the list is her peanut butter fudge sauce, then this, then her peanut butter snickers sauce which just never seemed to go runny enough for me.
