Old Fashioned Hot Fudge Sauce
You may never purchase another jar of the store-brand after making Old Fashioned Hot Fudge Sauce. You can have this thick, rich sauce drizzled over your ice cream in ten minutes or less.
Servings: 1 pint
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 2 Tablespoons corn starch
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Add all ingredients to a small saucepan.
Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly until the mixture boils and thickens.
Serve over ice cream. Cool, cover and store in the refrigerator.
- This thick hot fudge recipe is a copycat of the jarred type that you get at the grocery store.
- Grandma's hot fudge sauce uses cocoa powder for a deep, rich chocolate flavor.
- Corn starch is the thickening agent, and you may get clumps if you don't whisk constantly. Feel free to push the sauce through a sieve for a smoother texture.
- Let the homemade hot fudge sauce cool completely, seal and store in the refrigerator.
- To rewarm old fashioned hot fudge sauce, remove the metal lid, and warm in 30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring in between intervals until it's at your desired temperature.
- Serve drizzled over ice cream or try adding a scoop to your morning coffee to create a mocha. Try Grandma's Ice Cream recipe.
