10 Minute Chocolate Fudge Sauce. An old fashioned style fudge sauce using common household ingredients like you’d find in Grandma’s kitchen.

10 Minute Chocolate Fudge Sauce

This is a real old fashioned, cocoa based, fudge sauce made from just a few simple ingredients. It makes a thick, indulgent addition to ice cream sundaes and other desserts.

To me a fudge sauce should be on the thick side and not thin and watery. Store the sauce in the fridge and warm it up a little at a time for hot fudge sundaes too.

Take a look at the few seconds of video in this post to see this glossy, beautiful, thick sauce at room temperature being poured onto my homemade Cappuccino Ice Cream. It’s a thing of beauty.

10 minute Chocolate Fudge Sauce

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

This is a real old fashioned cocoa based chocolate fudge sauce made from just a few simple ingredients for a thick, indulgent addition to ice cream sundaes


  • 2 cups white sugar
  • ¾ cup sifted cocoa
  • pinch salt
  • ½ cup corn syrup
  • ¾ cup melted butter
  • 1¼ cups undiluted evaporated milk, no water added, not sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a medium sized saucepan, stir all of the ingredients together.
  2. Bring to a very gentle boil, stirring occasionally.
  3. Simmer for five minutes. Watch it very closely, it can foam up and boil over if the heat is too high or the pot too small. This is not a recipe to walk away from.
  4. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
