Hot Fudge Sauce
This is the best hot fudge sauce. Is great to give out as a gift or make and keep in your fridge for ice cream!
  • 10 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (I used half semi sweet & half bittersweet)
  • ⅓ cup sifted cocoa powder (I used regular but you can use dutch process for a deeper flavor)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup light corn syrup
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream
  • dash of salt
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate on 50% power at one minute increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. (Or according to the package directions or melting) Be careful not to overheat and scorch the chocolate. Set aside.
  2. In a heavy-bottomed medium sized saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, heavy cream, salt and ⅓ cup water. Warm the mixture over medium-low heat until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Increase the heat to medium or medium-high; simmer mixture, stirring frequently, about 4 minutes.
  4. Turn off the heat and whisk in the vanilla and butter.
  5. Cool the mixture slightly, about 2 minutes; whisk in the melted chocolate.
  6. Serve warm.
This can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks. To serve, reheat the sauce on low (in the microwave or over simmering water), stirring several times until the sauce is smooth and shiny.
