Hot fudge is one of the guilty pleasures….and add vanilla ice cream and whipped cream…a maraschino cherry and you have heaven in a bowl….. So this is an easy and very tasty recipe for hot fudge – hope you enjoy!!!!
2/3 cup heavy cream
16 fluid oz. (2 cups) light corn syrup
1 lb. semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
2-1/2 oz. (5 Tbs.) unsalted butter
Pinch table salt
Put the cocoa in a heavy-based saucepan. Slowly pour in the cream and whisk until smooth. Add the corn syrup, chopped chocolate, butter, and salt. Set the pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally to combine. When the chocolate is melted and the mixture comes to a boil, reduce the heat and let boil gently until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
Let the sauce cool until it’s just warm (steam should no longer rise from the sauce when it’s stirred) before stirring in one of the flavor variations below (if using) or pouring into jars.
