  1. In a heavy saucepan, combine the chocolate, butter, sugar, water, and corn syrup over medium heat. Stir the mixture continually until the chocolate and butter have melted and the sugar has dissolved.
  2. When the sauce comes to a boil, lower the heat and continue boiling gently for 10 minutes. Remove the thickened sauce from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Use immediately or store covered in the refrigerator


  • Note: To reheat, place in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring after the first 3 minutes.

I followed the recipe and I had much higher expectations for this. It's really more like a chocolate syrup than hot fudge sauce. It was way too sweet for my liking and not what I would conside...

I halved this recipe and it was plenty enough for all four of us for about 3 or 4 nights of sundaes! It was more like chocolate syrup, but I would surmise if you added slightly less water, then ...

Might be nice to add cocoa powder to get the full rich effect. Worked well for our waffle and pancake topping!
