Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

Rich and chocolatey, this hot fudge sauce is perfect for pouring over ice cream, brownies, pancakes or anything else you think needs to be pushed right over the top into sweet, decadent goodness. So good and so easy to make it cries out to be made and drizzled over the top of something.

Hot Fudge Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 cup, Sugar
  • ¾ cup, Cocoa
  • ¾ cup, Half and Half OR Milk
  • 4 Tbsp, Butter
  • 2 tsp, Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ tsp, Salt

Hot Fudge Sauce Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and stir for an additional 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and pour into heat safe container using a funnel.
  4. Allow to cool and stir in refrigerator for up to 2 months.

You can store in a mason jar, or another similar container. I have also used olive oil dispensers like this one perfect for drizzling, or a syrup dispenser like this would be great as well.

If you plan on making a gift of this Hot Fudge Sauce pop into a basket with a couple pretty bowls, an ice cream scoop, and maybe some sprinkles for a beautiful presentation. If you want to customize your flavor even further, add a teaspoon or two of orange, raspberry, or coffee extract in place of vanilla to add another layer of flavor!

Cost Breakdown

A small container of store bought hot fudge will cost you about $3.50. All of the ingredients to make your own be around $1.50. Not only are you getting a bargain but you will be controlling the quality of your ingredients and keeping out unnecessary ingredients and preservatives.
