Mom’s Hot Fudge Sauce
My mother has been making this recipe since I was a kid. She once sent it to me, so for posterity, here it is.
Hot Fudge Sauce
3 tablespoons butter
3 ounces (3 squares) unsweetened chocolate
1 cup white sugar
½ cup hot water
¼ cup corn syrup
Dash of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a heavy saucepan melt butter with chocolate. Add sugar, water, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring almost constantly. Reduce heat and boil gently, without stirring, until smoothly thickened, about 8-10 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Serve hot. Makes about 1½ cups.
The sauce keeps well in the refrigerator and can be heated in the microwave.
The recipe can be halved or doubled.
