Hot Fudge Sauce

Method for Hot Fudge Sauce ~ “The grand kind that, when cooked for the longer period and served hot, grows hard on ice cream and enraptures children.”

Melt in a double boiler, over—not in—hot water:

  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
    • [You can substitute 6 Tablespoons cocoa powder and 2 Tablespoons butter]

Stir and blend well, then add:

  • 1/3 cup boiling water

Stir well and add:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 T corn syrup

Let the sauce to boil readily, but not too furiously, over direct heat. Do not stir. If you wish an ordinary sauce, boil it for 5 minutes. If you wish a hot sauce that will harden over ice cream, boil it for about 8 minutes. Add just before serving: 1 teaspoon vanilla or 2 teaspoons rum. When cold, this sauce is very thick. It may be reheated over boiling water. Makes 1 cup.
