Total time
This is a less-sweet more grown up hot fudge.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12
  • ⅔ cup cream
  • ¼ cup good cocoa
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar (you could go ½ cup if you like it sweeter)
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • ¼ tsp salt (scant)
  • 170 grams (6 oz) dark chocolate chopped and divided
  • 2 tbs unsalted butter (or use salted and use less salt)
  • 1 tsp good vanilla extract
  1. Place the cream, syrup, sugar, cocoa, salt and half of the chopped chocolate in a saucepan on low heat until chocolate has melted and then raise the temperature until the mixture comes to a simmer. Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from heat and add the other half of the chocolate, the butter and the vanilla extract and stir til smooth.
  3. Let cool for 15-20 minutes and place in jars and when cool place in the refrigerator. The sauce will be very thick but half a minute in the microwave (or less) will make it pourable but still thick.
  4. It will keep in the fridge up to 2 weeks if it lasts that long.
