Cocoa Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe

Here’s a little gem I have made for a long time. Way back when, I used to babysit for three young kids and their mother always made this recipe for them. I never knew you could make hot fudge sauce with unsweetened cocoa, primarily because my mom used to just buy jars and cans of chocolate syrup. So, when I first tasted this hot fudge sauce, I was in heaven. Easy to make with unsweetened cocoa – and who doesn’t have unsweetened cocoa sitting on the shelf! – and better than store bought, this cocoa hot fudge sauce is simply a delight all year long.

Ingredients

3/4 Cups sugar
1/2 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Cup whole milk or half and half
1/4 Cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash of salt

Directions

In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cocoa and milk, stirring with a whisk or fork until completely combined and smooth.

Put the saucepan on medium heat and stir continually until the ingredients have come to a boil.

Stir in butter and continue to boil until sauce thickens, about 5-6 minutes, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and salt.

Store in container in the refrigerator. Makes about 12-13 ounces, or about one small jar.
To reheat, microwave for approximately 30 seconds.
