Chocolate Fudge Sauce

Yield: 1 1/2 cups sauce

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 5 min


1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
3 tablespoons salted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Measure cocoa, sugar, cream, syrup, butter and salt into heavy saucepan.

2. Stir until blended. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved.

3. Remove from heat and add vanilla.

4. Serve over ice cream, cake, brownies, or puddings. Keep refrigerated.


*If you are preparing this recipe as gluten-free, just be sure to use brands of corn syrup and vanilla that are known to be GF.
*For a thoughtful gift, pour sauce into a pretty jar. Label, and tie a ribbon around the top with instructions for serving.
*To reheat: on stovetop, stir over low heat for 5-8 minutes, until sauce is hot. In microwave, put sauce into glass jar. Reheat 2-3 minutes on high, stirring once about halfway through.
