Hot Fudge is the perfect accompaniment to a lot of desserts. Much like my favourite chocolate syrup, hot fudge is perfect over other desserts. Add a little hot fudge to desserts or just use it on your ice cream.

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1¼ tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a medium saucepan, combine cream, butter, brown sugar, sugar, and salt. Bring to a simmer on medium to medium low heat.
  • Simmer for about 1 minute.
  • Add in chocolate chips and whisk to melt.
  • Once the chocolate has melted, remove from heat.
  • Use a sifter and add in cocoa powder.
  • Whisk the cocoa powder into the mixture until smooth.
  • Return pan to low heat and simmer until the sauce becomes glossy, about 1-2 minutes. You’ll want to whisk constantly to ensure all the cocoa powder is incorporated.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla extract.
  • You can now serve or place in jars and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
  • Once the hot fudge has set in the refrigerator, remove lid and heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until you get the temperature you want.
