We have been using this same recipe for our warm fudge sauce for years, and the girls (all 5 of them) call it fancy … they love it, and we have used it on everything! I am sure it will also become a favourite in your house too!
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
Whisk sugar and cocoa, gradually adding in water. Stir over medium high heat until mixture comes to a full boil, then gently boil for a few minutes until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla.
For microwave: Heat sugar, cocoa and water in microwave safe bowl on high until mixture comes to a boil. Stir well and microwave on medium for 4-5 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla.
This sauce stays soft when poured over ice cream – to have it hot just gently warm it up before using. Keeps well in the fridge (if you can make it last!).
