My husband is a real chocolate lover, so I'm always on the lookout for great dessert recipes like this one, which I found years ago. Who can resist the combination of chocolate cake, ice cream and hot fudge sauce? It gets rave reviews whenever I serve it. —Hildy Adams Alma, Michigan


  • 1 package (11-1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vanilla ice cream


  1. In a heavy saucepan, melt milk chocolate chips and butter over low heat. Cool slightly. Whisk in egg yolks. Add flour just until combined. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold into chocolate mixture until blended. Fold in almonds.
  2. Pour into a greased 10-in. pie plate or quiche dish. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. For sauce, combine sugar, cocoa and cream in a saucepan until smooth. Add semisweet chips and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until chips and butter are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla.
  4. Cut cake into wedges; top with ice cream. Drizzle with warm sauce.
