Hot Fudge Sauce

Hot Fudge Sauce: this quick and easy sauce is thick and fudgy and the perfect addition to ice cream as a hot fudge sundae or any dessert.

This sauce is the best hot fudge sauce I’ve ever had.  It’s pretty easy to make and so much better than store bought,  Trust me when I say it’s definitely worth the effort to make it.  We used ours to make ice cream sundaes, but you could use it to elevate any dessert, and add some fudgy goodness,  I love it, and I’m not even a real chocolate lover.

Made With Pantry Ingredients

One of the things we love about this sauce, is that you can make it with simple pantry ingredients. Don’t worry if you’re out of chocolate, or chocolate chips. This recipe uses cocoa powder. I try to keep a tin of evaporated milk in my pantry as well, it lasts forever, and adds a real richness to this fudge sauce.

What Is The Difference Between Chocolate Sauce And Hot Fudge Sauce?

You might be wondering what the difference between chocolate sauce and hot fudge sauce is. Chocolate sauce is typically thinner. Hot fudge sauce is thick and fudgy. When chocolate sauce cools it remains pourable. Hot fudge sauce is served hot because as it cools it becomes very thick, fudgey and un-pourable. If you’re serving this hot fudge sauce over ice cream, the hot sauce will melt some of your ice cream, and the cold ice cream will make the some of the sauce even more thick and fudgey – making the perfect combo! The main difference between chocolate sauce and hot fudge sauce is the texture.  If you’re looking for a runnier sauce that doesn’t thicken up, this isn’t the sauce for you.
