Some sundaes are worth melting for!
This deep, dark hot fudge sauce keeps for ages and heats up perfectly each and every time, making it a great make-ahead dessert when you’re serving ice cream sundaes. I served this with vanilla bean gelato, amaretto whipped cream, slivered almonds, Ice Queen sprinkles, and a white chocolate snowflake at my Frozen Disney Dinner Party.

Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge Sauce
2/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
5 oz semi-sweet Ghirardelli chocolate, finely chopped, divided
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 tsp good vanilla extract
- Combine the cream, corn syrup, sugar, cocoa, and 3 oz chocolate in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer on low, stirring, for 3 to 5 more minutes after everything has melted.
- Remove from heat and stir in butter, vanilla extract, and remaining chopped chocolate, stirring until smooth.
- Cool for about fifteen minutes before ladling over ice cream to give the sauce a chance not thicken. You can keep the leftovers in a jar in the fridge for several months.
