Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge

Here's a quick and easy recipe for a hot fudge sauce that will knock your socks off...you will never use the store bought stuff again....

Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge Sauce
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
6 tablespoons dark cocoa
2/3 cup dark (60% cacao) chocolate chips, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Combine the cream, corn syrup, brown sugar, cocoa, 1/3 cup chocolate chips, and salt in a 1 1/2 quart heavy saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring, until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and let boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining chocolate chips, vanilla, and butter.  Pour into jars and cool for 30 minutes at room temperature. The sauce will thicken as it cools. Makes about 2 cups.

The key to making it extra tasty is to use the Special Dark Cocoa and Dark Chocolate Chips....

Just wrap a ribbon around the jar and give it to your sweetheart...

Seriously addicting, this stuff is. I've made it 4 times in the last few weeks, and hubby and I have been eating hot fudge sundaes every night. We may need an intervention....

Seriously---You've got to try it on this on my Crazy Good Banana Pound Cake!

What would you pour it over??


  1. Cathy, I will need an intervention if I make this sauce, there won't be enough ice cream in the store to stay ahead of my gluttony. This is an amazing recipe in a long line of amazing from you!

    1. Thank you, my friend...this long winter has me so addicted to comfort food that my need for intervention has become epic! Yikes!
