Hey! It’s my first Star Trek recipe! In trying to think of recipes inspired by Star Trek, I’ve had a bit of a hard time since a lot of the foods mentioned are made from foods that are not found on Earth. But then I started thinking about Counselor Troi and her love of chocolate…
For me Star Trek: The Next Generation falls into that “so bad its good” sweet spot. It’s so nerdy and so 80s, but so captivating. Part of the appeal for me, I admit, is that I have many fond memories of watching TNG and Voyager with my family growing up.
Deanna Troi is one of my favorite characters on this show, and I think it’s because of her heightened emotions and sensitivity. I love that her high sensitivity is seen as an asset to the crew of the Enterprise, rather than a detriment. I think we, as a society, could learn something from that. It’s okay to be sensitive and to make decisions based on intuition and feeling. There should be plenty of room for people like that in our society, and they can help us all if we let them!
One of Counselor Troi’s favorite things is chocolate. She’s always replicating some kind of chocolate concoction, whether it’s a mug of hot chocolate right before bed, or a delicious hot fudge sundae after dinner.
Enter the ultimate chocolate sundae. Almost all of the components are chocolate! I almost dipped the maraschino cherry in melted chocolate, too, but I figured the red would give a nice pop of color to the photograph.
Below are two really easy recipes: one for homemade hot fudge, and one for chocolate whipped cream. Use these recipes to make the most decadent hot fudge sundae you’ve ever eaten!
