Homemade Hot Fudge

This homemade hot fudge is AMAZING. I typically don’t discrimiate when it comes to chocolate, but my husband is appalled by my beloved Hershey’s Syrup and hot fudge. He doesn’t appreciate anything that tastes fake or overly processed. I thought I would take a stab at making it homemade to see if I could change his mind. I used this recipe from Averie Cooks. OH! And did I mention this takes 10 minutes to make! By the time I rounded up all of my ingredients, it was probably more like 15… but still super quick! The thing I really enjoyed about this recipe, is that it fit PERFECTLY into an 8oz ball jar. That means it would be easy to double and fill two, to give for gifts 🙂

The awesome ice cream scoop you see pictured below is compliments of my wood-working papa who made it for Mr. CWP and I as a house warming gift. He made us a pizza cutter too. I LOVE them! The long, sturdy handle gives me great leverage for those hard-to-scoop ice creams!IMG_9650

Homemade Hot Fudge


2/3 c. half and half or heavy cream
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1/3 c. dark brown sugar, packed
1/4 c.  cocoa powder
4 oz dark chocolate (60%) and 2 oz 70% dark chocolate
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 Tbsp vanilla extract


  1. Bring cream, corn syrup, brown sugar, cocoa and half the chopped chocolate to a boil in a saucepan over moderate heat, stirring, until chocolate is melted. Reduce heat and cook at a low boil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Turn off the heat and add butter, vanilla, remaining chocolate, and stir until smooth. Cool slightly before serving
  3. Cooled sauce can be stored in a jar with a lid or in airtight container in the refrigerator for many weeks. The original recipe suggest one week, but I kept mine for about a month
