In one of her 1981 columns in McCall's magazine Julia Child published a recipe for the authentic Schrafft's Hot Fudge Sauce. I made it and, indeed, it was the closest to what i remember having when I was growing up. It was complicated in that it took required several boilngs at different tempartures after adding additional ingredients. Unfortunately, I lost the recipe along with a carton of books in my last move.
What was most interesting to me was that the base of the hot Fudge Sauce was Schrafft's equally famous Hot Butterscotch Sauce so that if you doubled the recipe you could stop before the final step of adding cocoa, pour off half and have butterscotch sauce and then add the cocoa to the remaining half and have fudge sauce.
The recipes I've found for this sauce on the intranet (one by Arthur Schwartz and one in the book "When Everybody Ate At Schrafft's" by Joan Slomenson) are not the one I'm looking for. I hope someone has saved the Julia Child column with the recipe.
