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


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.

WOW THANK YOU FOR THIS ONE!!! :) Really look forward to making this one, I love hot fudge over Ice Cream!

thank you!
