Raise your hand if you love chocolate!! You can’t see it, but I have both hands raised right now. 😉 Yes, I admit it…I am a chocoholic. But not just any chocolate, it has to be dark chocolate and it has to be as close to dairy-free as possible. I have searched every store in every city that I have been to in the past 10 years, and there are not a whole lot of choices when it comes to Hot Fudge Sauce…..

so I decided to create my own. I always think about Hot Fudge Sauce when I am playing with chocolate ganache, like on my recent Chocolate Hazelnut Pizza, and my favorite BAILEYS Kiss Cupcakes. I finally decided that enough is enough, and created this delicious topping for ice cream…..

How to make Hot Fudge Sauce:

Heat the chocolate, butter, sugar, salt,and milk in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat until melted, stirring occasionally…..

Remove from heat and add stir in the vanilla…..

Pour sauce into a glass jar and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. This sauce thickens as it cools, and gets thinner when heated…..

You should probably hide the jar in the back of the refrigerator to keep everyone from eating it with a spoon straight out of the jar…it is that good!! This Hot Fudge Sauce is thick and rich even without using half & half {which you can substitute if you like}.

For those of you that do not have a kitchen scale, this is what 6 ounces of chocolate chips looks like in a 1 cup measuring cup…..

Let’s call it a “heaping” 1 cup of chocolate chips, LOL.

  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate

  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil or butter
  • teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup unsweetened cashew milk*
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Heat the chocolate, butter, sugar, salt,and milk in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat until melted, stirring occasionally.

  • I used Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips, but they contain milk fat. Substitute a dairy-free chocolate for a vegan hot fudge sauce.
