The White Lady is a famous French opera based on Scottish writer Sir Walter Scott’s works. The tale is one of love, mystery, heroes, and romance but Dame Blanche is also the name for Belgium’s classic dessert; the Hot Fudge Sundae. Dame Blanche is on most restaurant menus in Belgium and after a big meal of Mussels and Pommes Frites, this was my favorite dessert to order. A perfect accompaniment to this dessert is Cherish Raspberry a Belgian Lambic.
While in Boston last week, I stayed with my cousin Cliff, who is a Belgian Beer Importer. So lets just say I sampled some fabulous beers. I fell in love with Cherish Raspberry. My cousin Cheryl also made a delicious Hot Fudge Sauce for the ice cream they purchased from Richardson’s, the best! So in honor of my trip to Boston, my fond memories of Belgium, and my new love of Cherish I bring you La Dame Blanche.
This 3 ingredient fudge sauce is not only good it is easy. It would be great as a fondue too.
premium vanilla ice cream
chocolate fudge sauce
For the Chocolate Fudge Sauce:
1 can sweetened condensed milk
4 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate
1 t. vanilla
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, stir milk and chocolate together until chocolate is melted and sauce is thick and warm. Be careful not to scorch. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp. vanilla extract.
In a Cherish Glass or any pretty glass, place two scoops vanilla ice cream. Top with whipped cream and a cherry. Serve the Hot Fudge Sauce on the side. Enjoy with a Cherish Raspberry or Cherish Cherry Lambic.
For a Dark Lady use chocolate ice cream and in time for Halloween, a Green Lady, use pistachio ice cream.
