Hot Fudge Sauce

Whenever I have a dinner party, dessert seems to take up way too much of my cook & prep time. The solution is this fabulous hot fudge sauce that my mom found on When served over ice cream in a pretty bowl or ice cream dish, it's a perfect and decadent finish to your dinner party, and everyone loves ice cream! Since it only has four ingredients, it is easy on the wallet as well. I promise, your guests will NOT be disappointed!


Recipe Notes

You can add additional light corn syrup if the consistency is too thick, but usually the 1/3 cup recommended is just right.

  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • 1/3 c. light corn syrup (plus additional for thinning, if needed)
  • 12 oz. bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. extract (vanilla, rum, almond, orange or peppermint are some ideas)


1. Combine heavy cream and corn syrup in small saucepan. Stir to combine, and bring just to a boil over medium-high heat.

2. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips and extract. Whisk until chocolate is melted. If necessary, adjust consistency with additional corn syrup.

3. Serve over ice cream.

Suggested Extract & Ice Cream Combinations

  • Vanilla fudge - vanilla, mint chocolate chip, cookies & cream, peppermint, or chocolate covered cherries ice cream
  • Almond fudge - vanilla or pecan praline ice cream
  • Rum fudge - vanilla, chocolate, or rum raisin ice cream
  • Orange fudge - vanilla or chocolate ice cream
  • Peppermint fudge - vanilla, chocolate, or peppermint ice cream
