Homemade Chocolate Sauce
from Scratch

This homemade chocolate sauce is rich and creamy. It is easy to make and you can spoon it over ice cream, cheesecake, desserts and anything else you can think of (your finger) ...

There is nothing like this easy chocolate sauce from scratch.  I have also posted my homemade vanilla ice cream recipe below. 

My problem with this sauce is that I do not completely scrape all of the sauce over the dessert.  I make sure I leave a "little" bit - will grab a spatula, sit down and enjoy a little piece of heaven all by itself. 

Rich Homemade Chocolate Sauce

Homemade Chocolate Sauce


2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
2/3 cup cocoa powder (dark or bittersweet will work too)
dash of salt
1 TBS dark rum, more to taste (optional)

In a medium saucepan, heat the heavy cream and butter, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts and the mixture comes just to a boil. Add the sugars and stir them until dissolved.

Sift the cocoa. Whisk it together with the dash of salt and add to the fudge sauce (cream and sugar mixture); bringing back to a boil. Gently simmer the fudge sauce, whisking constantly, until the cocoa powder has dissolved, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Stir in the rum if you are using it.

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe from Scratch


2 cups of heavy whipping cream
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract

In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until light and fluffy or about 90 seconds. Next, whisk in the sugar VERY SLOWLY and continue to whisk until incorporated or 1 minute. Pour in the creams, milk and vanilla, and whisk until blended.

Pour mixture into ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's directions. This makes 1 quart.

Try adding coarsely chopped Reese's Peanut Butter cups or any candy that you like to your own homemade ice cream recipe. Just add it when the ice cream stiffens or approximately two minutes before it's done. Let the appliance continue to process until completed.

NOTE: You may use 2 cups of heavy whipping if you want true indulgence. If you are a vanilla lover (like me), add 1 TBS of vanilla extract.
