Hands down, one of the best hot fudge sauces you'll ever try...and worth every calorie! Whenever my mother made homemade ice cream, she also made this luscious hot fudge sauce. It's thick, rich and has a fabulous taste with the Dutch cocoa adding a nice depth of flavor. It only takes about 30 minutes to make and is SO simple that you'd be crazy not to give it a try.

"This recipe was AWESOME. I tried three different recipes in one day trying to find a good one. This one was hands down the best of the three. It wasn't hard to make and didn't take much time at all. I used Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips and made sure to only boil it on low for 5 minutes so as not to overcook it. It was smooth, fudgy and chewy when poured over ice-cream. Rich and delicious - this recipe is a keeper - thanks so much for sharing!! "

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
2/3 cup Heavy cream
1/2 cup Light corn syrup
1/3 cup dark brown sugar,; firmly packed
1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate,; finely chopped (use a good quality chocolate)
2 tablespoons Unsalted butter
1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract

Original recipe makes 2

Cups  

Preparation

Combine the cream, corn syrup, sugar, cocoa, salt, and half of the chocolate in a 1 1/2-quart heavy-based saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring, until chocolate is melted. Reduce heat and cook at a low boil, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and whisk in the butter, vanilla, and remaining chocolate, whisking until smooth. Cool sauce slightly before serving. Sauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week; reheat before using.

Makes about 2 cups.

Serving suggestions:

Pour over any flavor of ice cream to create a luscious hot fudge sundae. Don't forget about chopped nuts and/or other toppings!

Used as a topping for any cake, pie or tarte -- changing an otherwise ordinary dessert into an unforgettable dessert!

Drizzle over your favorite fruit or fruit salad -- most fruits are well complemented by the strong and contrasting taste of hot fudge!

Wonderful drizzeled over bread pudding -- I like to add 1/2 cup bourbon to the sauce before boiling for an extra kick.

Notes

Do not let the sauce cook too long or it will become fudge.

Oh my goodness! This is fabulous! So rich and thick. I couldn't find the Dutch cocoa powder, so I used regular unsweetened cocoa powder and it is still delicious.

Absolutely fantastic! This recipe was very simple and couldn't be easier to make. The sauce had that thick, fudgy consistency that a good hot fudge sauce is supposed to have, had loads of intense chocolaty flavor and went extremely well with our homemade sundaes and banana splits. It was a big hit with my family and beats store bought sauce hands down!
