Enjoy the dessert that combines both hot and cold ingredients to create an irresistible treat.

To make perfect Hot Fudge Sundaes all you need is…

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate (5 1/2 ounces), chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Fresh or jarred cherries

Now that you have the ingredients, it is time to make the sundae:

Place chocolate in a bowl. Heat 1/2 of the cup cream with 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan. Bring to a slight simmer. Pour hot cream over chocolate and allow it to sit untouched for a minute. Stir until fully mixed. Then add in corn syrup and stir until smooth. Whisk the remaining 1/2 cup of cream until it is whipped and fluffy. Lastly, place 2 scoops of ice cream in two bowls. Spoon the sauce over the ice cream and garnish with whipped cream and a cherry.

Remember… there is always room for ice cream.
