Fancy Fudge Sauce

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!).
