Real Food Chocolate Fudge Sauce
Real Food Chocolate Fudge Sauce
This Real Food Chocolate Fudge Sauce is so easy to make plus it's unbelievably delicious. Silky and rich, this heavenly chocolate fudge sauce is so much healthier than the store-bought stuff, and only takes 2 minutes to make!
- ½ cup cacao powder (<-- this is the fair-trade cocoa I use)
- ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon honey (I use local raw creamed clover)
- 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter or ghee (See My Store for brands I use)
- 1 teaspoon gluten free organic vanilla extract
- In a small saucepan, add cacao powder, honey, butter and vanilla.
- Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until butter has melted and everything is incorporated, about 1-2 minutes.
- Let cool for a couple of minutes and serve. If you'd prefer for it to thicken up a bit, let it sit for about 15-20 minutes before using.
- Using ghee will make the sauce taste more like a combination of chocolate + caramel sauce.
- Recipe can easily be doubled.
- Do not use mainstream, heavily processed, thin honey. You want to use a real, pure, local if possible, raw, light colored honey (creamed or whipped honey is fine too).
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 and Strawberry Ice Cream. I also use it in my Paleo Brownie Cheesecake 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 grass-free butter and organic maple syrup grade B (or unrefined sweetener of choice) for the honey.

this sauce turned out like curled milk. yuck! Any ideas why?
Hi Kari, what ingredients did you use? What kind of honey did you use? Did you add the ingredients in the same steps as listed in the recipe? If you used butter, was it fresh? What about the cocoa powder you used - did it have any other ingredients in it and was it fresh? There is no way this could turn out like curdled milk and the recipe is indeed delicious. If you see the photos, it's a true chocolate fudge sauce consistency. I have made this sauce probably hundreds of times, and served it to many guests, so I know it's fool proof and very well liked by many.
I pout the cocoa, fresh then raw honey, then butter, room temp. and heated on med low.
It seemed odd to me that there was no milk or cream of any kind. Did I miss something?
This sauce doesn't use milk or cream, none is needed. The butter and honey melts down to form the base. What kind of honey did you use? I use local honey or Honey Gardens Raw Honey. I have always made it the way the instructions state, but you could add the butter and honey first, melting the butter and then add the cocoa powder, whisking it together.
Super excited to try this with the kiddos! They've never had the garbage version from Hersheys...I know they will love this! And it is SO easy too! Thanks Emily!
I love that your kids don't know about the Hershey's version! I hope you get to make some of this for them 🙂
