Every Sunday evening we have a game night. We pop popcorn, have a milkshake or ice cream sundae and play preschool age games with the kids. A couple of weeks ago, I made King Arthur’s chocolate sauce, for the first time, to drizzle on a banana split. The sauce was absolutely delicious! Every night since my kids have been begging to have hot fudge sundae after dinner. Some nights I cave in. . .I love this recipe because it only makes about one cup of sauce, perfect for several nights of sundaes for a little family like us. It warms up within seconds in the microwave. Making it fast (less than a minute) and easy to throw together a decadent hot fudge sundae for the family.
I have adapted the original recipe slightly. Here is how we make the recipe. . .
Hot Fudge Sauce
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1/2 cup Karo Syrup
- 1/4 cup Milk, Whole or 2%
- 2 T. Butter
- 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
Combine sugar, cocoa, karo, and milk into saucepan. Mix well. Cook on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until mixture comes to a full boil.
Turn heat down to medium-low and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Mix until butter is melted and combined.
Serve warm over ice cream.
Store in fridge for 2-3 weeks. Makes 1 cup.
