Our Family’s Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe

Serves 2 to 4 people depending on your chocoholic status.

  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of quality cocoa powder (Dutch processed if you can get it.  Hershey’s or Nestle’s are fine.)
  • 1/4 cup milk or half and half (You can also use heavy cream or skim milk, depending on the desired richness.)
  • 1/4 cup SALTED butter (If you do not use salted butter you’re going to need to add a healthy pinch of salt to the mix.)

Combine the sugar and cocoa powder in a small sauce pan.  Then add the milk product of you choice (see above) and stir just to combine the ingredients.  Turn the heat on medium underneath the pan and add the 1/4 cup of butter.  Stir the mixture BRIEFLY as the butter melts just to incorporate it.  The more you stir the mixture, the “harder” it will become.  -To keep it saucy, keep the stirring down to a minimum.  The mixture needs to boil for about a minute, so that the sugar dissolves.  Once it has boiled, remove the pan from the heat and allow the hot fudge to cool a little before pouring it over your favorite ice cream.  Enjoy!  (Not a low fat/low sugar dessert)

    Hey Reg –

    Mom got that recipe from Bonnie (I think) when we were younger and used to make it for us on occasion. It is THE best hot fudge I’ve ever tasted!!

      I agree wholeheartedly; I find it to be a little bit too irresistible at times!
