Hot Fudge Sauce

ice cream and hot fudge sauce - trust in kim

We are finally having our first warm days in Vancouver, so I thought it was the perfect time to post a recipe featuring ice cream.  I’ve made this hot fudge sauce a few times, but never got a photo I liked. So here it is. Easy to make, and a crowd-pleaser. It was served on vanilla ice cream, but it’s also delicious on a brownie or this amazing chocolate rum cake. There was a little bit of the eating it right off the spoon going on too.

I found the recipe here, and the only change I made was to cut the recipe in half. It will keep in the fridge for a few weeks, but even this portion was more than eight people used for one dessert.


What you need:

  • 125mL cocoa powder (1/2 cup)
  • 125mL granulated sugar (1/2 cup)
  • 125mL whipping cream (1/2 cup)
  • 70mL salted butter, cut into pieces (2 tablespoons)
  • 7mL pure vanilla extract (1& 1/2 teaspoons)

What you do:

  1. In a medium-sized pot whisk together the cocoa and sugar. Whisk in the cream, then turn the heat on to medium.
  2. Whisk the mixture as it warms, then add the butter. Stir until it melts.
  3. Remove from the heat, then add the vanilla and stir to combine.
  4. Let the sauce cool for  a few minutes, then pour it into a jar.
  5. You can store this in the fridge for a long time, but before using it, scoop out the amount you need and either microwave it for a few seconds, or heat it in a small pot until it is warm.
