Feel Better Hot Fudge Sauce

We have four grown children and our third child recently had spinal disk fusion surgery. We asked him to let us care for him in his recuperation, as he can't drive for awhile and I wanted to make his meals and do his laundry. One day, my hubby and I bought him 10 pints of different flavored ice creams. Now, mind you, he is 6' tall and weighs 155lbs, so he can afford the calories. One evening I asked him which flavor he wanted and he responded that he wanted the classic vanilla. He said, "Do you have any hot fudge sauce?"   I said, "No, but I'll make you some!"  Don't we always take care of our babies, no matter how old they are??!!

I have been making this sauce for a l-o-o-o-n-g time!  It's fudgy, creamy and as our son said, "This is delicious!" (I updated this recipe to include some corn syrup, which I have found prevents the sauce from getting sugary in the fridge).

3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. cocoa
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream (or evaporated milk can be used as a substitute)
1/4 c. butter
1 tablespoon corn syrup ( new addition)
1 t. vanilla

In a 2 qt. saucepan over medium heat, cook sugar, cocoa, heavy whipping cream,  butter, and corn syrup,  until mixture is smooth & boils, stirring constantly. Remove from heat & stir in vanilla. Cool fudge sauce slightly.

Refrigerate leftovers and reheat briefly in the microwave.

  10. Kitty,

  11. Man, that chocolate sauce looks really good! I hope your son is feeling better soon. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving encouraging comments--I am glad you enjoyed my Greek Eggplant Moussaka post and the post on morning glories. It is possible bunnies ate your morning glory starts. I know here they will not germinate if it is too cold at night, so perhaps this played into your seeds getting going as well? I wish you good luck with them next season!

  12. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR !! This sounds sooo good and if I had the whipping cream tonight, I would be making it. Tomorrow !!

  13. Kitty, so nice to meet you! Thanks you for welcoming me and for your sweet comments. I'll be back here for sure with recipes like these. Holy Cow, I feel better just looking at the hot fudge sauce!!!!!LOL Will talk again soon I hope. Love Patty

  14. Yes we never let our babies go, do we? This looks so delicious -- it's one of those things you learned early on if you are "une certain age" like moi. Ha!

    I need to make some this week -- it is finally getting chilliy out.

  15. Mine are not grown yet, but I can well see that I'll be happy to tend to them regardless their age.

    Great to have you be part of Seasonal Sundays.

  17. You’re such a dear mom, Kitty! Adopt me now! LOL! I really love hot fudge sauce. I’ve seen recipes of homemade hot fudge sauce, and so far, yours is the simplest! I’ll definitely gonna try it, as in right now! Thanks! =)
