Easy Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

Other than eating it by the spoonful and poured over ice cream and banana splits - you can also enjoy it drizzled over brownies or soufflés, for dipping or drizzling over fruit, drizzling over hot or cold cocoa beverages and also great in ice cream cakes or over them like in my Hula pie recipe. It’s made with simple pantry ingredients with no additives like the store bought stuff. It’s irresistible and you won’t regret making a batch!

Recipe

Makes approx 6 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream 
  • 2 cups dark cocoa powder 
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter

Directions

  1. Combine the sugar, cream, pinch of salt, cocoa and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring, until the butter melts and everything is combined, a few minutes.
  2. Transfer to a mason jar or sealed container and store in the refrigerator. It will harden as it cools so when ready to use, simply reheat in a saucepan over medium-low heat. When stored properly, it will last up to 4 months in the fridge.
