Ingredients

  • 4 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or whipping cream

Directions

  • In double boiler, melt chocolate and butter, stirring frequently. Whisk in cocoa powder until dissolved.
  • Gradually stir in sugar; the mixture will resemble wet sand. Cook over simmering water for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Check water level of double boiler, adding more if necessary.
  • Gradually stir in milk and cream. Continue stirring until completely blended. Continue cooking for 1 hour, stirring and checking water level occasionally. The sauce is ready when completely smooth and all sugar is dissolved.
  • Yields 1 quart

Notes

This recipe is for the actual hot fudge sauce served in Ben & Jerry's ice cream shops, a scaled down recipe of course! It's absolutely decadent. It goes on smooth and thickens when it hits the frozen ice cream, just as a hot fudge sauce should.
