Hot Fudge Sauce

There's nothing quite as wonderful as a warm fudge sauce poured over homemade ice cream, the homemade fudge sauce elevates the already grand ice cream to an ethereal delight. It is impossible to describe, so you need to make some and describe it to yourself.

Hot Fudge Sauce

2/3 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed firmly
1/4 cup cocoa powder (Dutch-process cocoa is best for this and Fry’s is great!)

1/4 tsp salt
6 oz dark (70%) or extra dark chocolate (85%), chopped and divided in half

2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla 

Place cream, corn syrup, sugar, cocoa, salt, and half of chocolate into a heavy saucepan.

Place over medium heat then bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Reduce heat to low-medium to achieve a light bubbling action, cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat. 

Add butter, vanilla, and remaining half of the chopped chocolate then stir until smooth. 

Cool sauce to warm before serving. Then watch the smiles and expressions of joy and rapture take over as your guests enjoy a bit of earthly, fudgy, bliss...

Store in a plastic container that has a tight-fitting lid.  It'll last 10 days in the fridge.
