Thick, creamy, and easy Hot Fudge Sauce made with just a few ingredients in 10 minutes. Perfect to top ice cream and brownies, or stir into your milk.
Servings: 4 ounces
- ½ cup sugar
- 2½ Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 5 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp sea salt
- ½ cup water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
In a medium saucepan whisk together sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and sea salt until no lumps remain.
Add water and whisk until combined.
Bring mixture to a low boil over medium heat stirring constantly for about 1 minute, until the sauce starts to thicken.
Remove from heat and add vanilla extract and butter. Whisk until smooth and butter is completely melted.
Pour sauce into a heat-proof jar and let cool. If not using right away, let cool completely and store tightly sealed in refrigerator for up to 1 month.
To reheat, place the amount needed in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, whisk together sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt. Stir in water and whisk until smooth.
Microwave for 1 minute, stir, and microwave 1 more minute.
Add the butter pieces. Cook for an additional 45-seconds.
Remove from microwave and stir until butter is melted and blended. Stir in vanilla extract.
