Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae with Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

Melinda | Missouri Girl
These Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundaes are a favorite in my home and popular whenever my kids have a sleepover. The hot fudge is the smoothest, creamiest hot fudge ever and is the perfect topping for the ooey gooey chocolate chip cookies.

    Make the hot fudge sauce:

    • While the chocolate chip cookies are baking, make the hot fudge sauce.
    • Combine the sugar and cocoa in a small bowl. Set aside.
    • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
    • Add the evaporated milk, vanilla, and salt. Stir well
    • Add the cocoa mixture and stir with a whisk until well combined.
    • Continue to heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a boil.
    • Boil gently for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
    • Remove from the heat.
    • The hot fudge sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.

    Assemble the Cookie Monster Sundaes:

    • Place the chocolate chip cookie on a plate.
    • Top with a generous scoop of ice cream and then drizzle (or drown) with hot fudge sauce. 


    The hot fudge sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.  It will be very thick and will need to be reheated prior to serving.
