Hot Fudge Sauce
This is the classic ice cream sundae topping.
Why This Recipe Works
While hot fudge sauce is easy enough to buy at the supermarket, we wanted to make our own decadent rendition at home. Our Hot Fudge Sauce recipe combines Dutch-processed cocoa powder and semisweet chocolate for the richest color and fudgiest flavor. Quicker and easier than the double boiler, microwaving the chocolate also prevented scorching. We used corn syrup to give the Hot Fudge Sauce a smooth, velvety texture that clings to the ice cream.
