Root Beer Floats

A & W Copycat Recipe

Serves 2

2 cups vanilla ice cream
2 bottles of root beer

Scoop equal amounts of ice cream into two glasses. Top with a bit of hot fudge, then pour in root beer. Drizzle a little more hot fudge over top.

Homemade Hot Fudge
1 cup sugar
1 cup cocoa
2 tablespoons flour
pinch of salt
1 cup boiling water or scalding milk
1 tablespoon of butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Combine sugar, cocoa, salt, and flour in a bowl or pot over a double boiler. Bring water or milk to a boil. Gradually add hot liquid to sugar mixture. Stir constantly until mixture thickens.

Once it has reached the desired thickness, remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Serve immediately if you would like a thinner sauce, or let it sit at room temperature for an hour to thicken. Store in the refrigerator.
