    Homemade chocolate fudge sauce takes ice cream, brownies, or your favourite spoon to a whole new level of deliciousness.

    Warm and gooey.

    The best possible way chocolate can behave.

    This homemade chocolate sauce has been made so often, and is so very loved, that I’m shocked it has not yet made an appearance.

    Microwave Hot Fudge Sauce

    My homemade chocolate sauce recipe is made in the microwave. But you could make it on the stove if you prefer.

    Either way, watch it closely and stir often.

    Unless you enjoy scraping chocolate from all your kitchen crevasses.

    Because boiling cream + sugar = sticky volcano.

    How To Make Chocolate Sauce with Cocoa Powder

    To make chocolate with sauce with cocoa powder, you simply mix sugar, cocoa powder and heavy cream, and stir and heat until combined. Butter is then added for richness, along with a dash of vanilla and pinch of salt to bring the fudge-y flavour together.

    Many hot fudge recipes call for melted chocolate and corn syrup.

    I find the cocoa powder-based version has a thicker texture and better flavour.

    As it cools, it becomes almost chewy. And you don’t have to worry about tempering chocolate or having it seize. Easy peasy.

    Also, you wanna talk about making a killer ice cream cake? Just spread a layer of softened ice cream in the bottom of a springform pan. Freeze. Make cocoa hot fudge sauce, cool slightly, and spread on frozen ice cream layer. Top with crushed chocolate wafers and another layer of softened ice cream, in a complementing flavour. Freeze again.

    Or just pour it all over chocolate and bananas.
