Old-Fashioned Hot Fudge

Old fashioned hot fudge

Sometimes you just need a good old-fashioned satisfying dessert, and our Executive Director, Lynn Barendsen, has got a great one: Her mom’s hot fudge recipe. Lynn suggests pairing the hot fudge with vanilla ice cream and a brownie, as pictured, for a simple but special treat. You can use your best brownie recipe or follow Lynn’s recommendation and try Katharine Hepburn’s brownies – they’re an FDP favorite!


1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup light cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla


1. Combine the corn syrup, light cream, sugar, and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
2. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate chips, stirring until smooth.
3. Add the vanilla and mix thoroughly. Serve hot.
