If you’re looking for something to warm up your favorite ice cream, this Milky-Sweet Chocolate Hot Fudge Sauce is the way to go. My family loves deep dark chocolate sauces, however, sometimes they’re in the mood for a chocolate topping that has a milder flavor. They really love this variation! I’ve combined creamy milk chocolate and exquisite semi-sweet chocolate to create a uniquely sweet and unforgettable flavor. Make this and you’ll never buy your hot fudge sauce at the store again. You can literally whip this up in about 10 minutes and immediately pour on top of your favorite frozen dessert for your sweet crazed family!
Milky-Sweet Chocolate Hot Fudge Sauce
(adapted from Averie Cooks)
2/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup unsweetened Hershey’s® cocoa powder, sifted
3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
3 ounces milk chocolate, finely chopped
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
In a medium heavy saucepan, add cream, corn syrup, brown sugar, cocoa powder, and half the chopped chocolate. Over medium heat, bring to a boil, stirring until chocolate is melted. Reduce heat and cook at a low boil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Turn off the heat and add butter, vanilla, remaining chocolate, and stir until smooth. Cool slightly before serving, that is if you can!
This Milky-Sweet Chocolate Hot Fudge Sauce can be made in advance, cooled and stored in a jar with a lid or in airtight container in the refrigerator for several weeks. However in my home, it does not last that long! You can reheat the sauce by scooping out the desired amount in a microwave-safe bowl and heating for about 10 to 15 seconds, or you can reheat on the stove top.
Smothered on your favorite ice cream is a must, however if you are a true chocolate fiend, you’ll love this sweet stuff right out of the jar!
