  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring


  • Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Cook on top of stove until it boils, then continue on a low boil about 3 more minutes stirring often. This makes 1 cup of hot fudge sauce. I usually double the recipe.
