Chocolate Fudge Sauce


Oh Chocolate Fudge Sauce, how I love you.  Truly, I LOVE this chocolate fudge sauce, it is absolutely heavenly.  Try making this instead of buying chocolate sauce from your grocery store, it’s so easy to make and worth your effort.

Chocolate Fudge Sauce
To. Live. For. Enough said.

Equipment: Small saucepan

  • ½ cup cacao powder
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons pasture butter or ghee (See Resources)
  • 1 teaspoon gluten free organic vanilla extract (I use Simply Organic)

1.     In a small saucepan, add cacao powder, honey, pasture butter and vanilla.


2.    Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until butter has melted and everything is incorporated, about 2-3 minutes. 


3.    Let cool for a couple of minutes and serve. 

Chocolate Fudge Sauce w/ Honey Vanilla Ice Cream

Note: Using Ghee will make the sauce taste more like a combination of chocolate and caramel sauce.  Recipe can easily be doubled. 

Storage:  If you have any leftover sauce, store in the refrigerator and reheat on stovetop when ready to use.  

Serving Suggestions: Serve with your favorite homemade ice cream (I love this on top of my Honey Vanilla Ice Cream), drizzle on top of a dessert, or eat it as is, there is nothing wrong with licking it off a spoon! 

Vegan-Option: Substitute coconut oil for the pasture butter and organic maple syrup grade B (or unrefined sweetener of choice) for the honey.
