Hot chocolate fudge sauce is easy to make and delicious. It has so many applications. You can serve it up over ice cream, use it in a chocolate souffle, or use it as a ganache for cakes. The list is endless. I love it drizzled over multi flavored ice cream. Once you make it, it lasts nicely in the fridge for a few days.
There are a few tips to making this delightful hot chocolate fudge sauce. The recipe calls for semi sweet chocolate chips, but you can use bitter or sweet chocolate chips depending on your taste. If you want it a little thicker in consistency, you can add a little more chocolate in. The pinch of salt is important as it will take the bitter taste away. Just about any kind of cream can be used, just as long as it’s heavy. Use medium heat to melt the chocolate and butter. Then, reduce it to low to allow the ingredients to blend together. Don’t, for whatever reason, begin with high heat or you run the risk of burning the butter which will create a rather unpleasant taste.

Add the ingredients to a saucepan. Over medium heat whisk them continuously until they melt, combine together, and the mixture begins to boil. Reduce the heat to low and continue to whisk for an additional 4 or 5 minutes. Pour the hot chocolate fudge sauce into a bowl and place it in the fridge to cool off.
