An easy yet great hot fudge sauce. I got it from my mom, who got it from a friend, who got it from who knows where, but it's delicious over ice cream.
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons cocoa
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 cup hot water
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- Stir everything together in a pot.
- Bring to a boil, stirring occassionally.
Love this! Quick and easy with ingredients I almost always have on hand. Sometimes I add a small amount of chocolate chips at the end for a little richer flavor.
While this was tasty enough, it was more like a fudgy pudding than a hot fudge sauce. It wasn't what I would consider a hot fudge sauce that I like to put on my ice cream.
Insanity! My goodness this was awesome. I am vegan and it's very difficult to find a hot fudge recipe w/o evaporated milk. My kids wanted sundaes on a whim when I was out of both cocoa and vanilla so I needed to sub in a little.
I used 4 oz of dark chocolate, decreased the butter to 2T and the sugar to 3/4 c (probably could have cut it to 1/2). I subbed a wee bit of chopped-to-dust vanilla bean and did add 1/8 t sea salt to counteract the sweet a bit. I can't wait to try it with a little cayenne or chipotle to add a kick.
This is a keeper recipe for my family. Thank you for posting!
