I’ve been looking for this recipe for a long, long time.  After many lousy experiences with homemade hot fudge, I was very hesitant to waste my ingredients yet again.  I’m so glad I trusted the recipe.
In other recipes I’ve tried, the result would be grainy or way too thin.  Often, the chocolate flavor was weak and not worth the extra calories.

Not so with this gem!
This was thick and truly fudge-y as it cooled on the ice cream.  I love having to scrape that thick chocolate goo off the sides of my bowl.  Heaven!  My kids were begging for another layer of hot fudge once the first was gone on the top of their scoop.  I was happy to oblige 🙂

No reviews


  • 2/3 C heavy cream
  • 1/2 C light corn syrup
  • 1/3 C dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 C cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 C semi sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 2 Tb butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. In a heavy saucepan, combine the cream, corn syrup, dark brown sugar, cocoa powder, salt and 1/2 C of the chocolate chips.  Heat over medium high heat and whisk until it comes to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and add the remaining chocolate chips, butter and vanilla.  Whisk until smooth and all melted together.  Allow to sit about 20 minutes to cool a bit.  It will thicken as it cools.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge and reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute until pourable, but thick.
