Nutella Fudge Sauce

March 7, 2012 · 20 comments in Snacks

Fudge Sauce.

It’s like eating brownie batter, but better. You can put on ice cream, use it as a simple glaze on a cake, make a sundae or turn into creamy hot chocolate.

and it just got better…

…with nutella.

Nutella, ah we meet again. The nutty goodness goes so well in this thick, gooey sauce. And guess what? This takes like 10 minutes to make, for reals.

Look! I even put the recipe on a pretty picture for you, with fonts and everything, so you can print it out… and frame it…or just put it in your recipe box / book, whatever.

The best thing:

You can make it no matter what the weather;

When it’s hot out, eat it cold on ice cream, or stir some into some cold milk for nutella chocolate milk.

When it’s cold out, eat it hot on cake…. actually, you should still have it on ice cream too, or stir some into hot milk, for the most perfect hot chocolate.

Ha ha! It’s a foolproof plan. High five!

(sorry, I just had to)



Nutella Fudge Sauce

1/2 cup (4 oz / 110g) sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp corn syrup / golden syrup
1/3 cup (80 ml) water
1/3 cup (80ml) milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup (125 ml) nutella

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the first 6 ingredients. Cook over a medium flame, whisking all the time, until the mixture starts to bubble and thickens. Take it off the heat and stir in the vanilla and nutella. Store in a sterilised jar in the fridge.

to make hot chocolate:

Heat 1 cup (250 ml) of milk in a small saucepan until steaming.

Whisk in 2 – 3 heaped tsps of nutella fudge sauce and some unsweetened
cocoa to taste.
Pour into a mug. Serves 1.

Your blog is just lovely. I love the photos! This recipe caught my eye because my son loves anything that contains Nutella. I will make it for him and I might even try the syrup in milk like you suggested! :)

It could be a few things, firstly you have to stir the mixture the whole time until it bubbles which will take around 8 minutes. A short time after it starts bubbling, the mixture should thicken as the starch in the cornstarch has been released into the mixture, and some water has evaporated. The mixture should thicken as it cools, to a frosting-like thickness, but it never gets super dense like fudge. You can try cooking it for a bit longer, if that doesn’t work, add 1/2 tbsp more cornstarch and continue to cook and stir until it bubbles and thickens to the consistency you want. Hope that helps!

Hi ! Your blog is lovely! Just wondering how long can you keep the sauce for? If kept in the fridge, can I reheat it again before use?

Thank you,

I’d say a week or two is probably fine!
