Hot Fudge Sauce

My friend Tamara gave me this recipe years ago. I’m not sure where she found it, but I do know that it’s delicious beyond words and obscenely fantastic drizzled over pies, ice cream and just about anything else you can sink your teeth into.

  • ½ cup (125 mL) packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup (125 mL) whipping (35%) cream
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) salted butter
  • ½ cup (125 mL) unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) dark rum


  1. In a heavy saucepan, whisk together brown sugar, cream and butter. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, whisking occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and whisk in cocoa powder, whisking continuously.

  2. Remove from heat and whisk in rum. Let cool until thickened. Fudge sauce will become very thick as it cools. Spoon over pies or tarts.
