Quite honestly, I didn’t even know this was a thing, but now there’s a whole new world of hot fudge sauce opened up to me.

Hello?  White chocolate peanut butter hot fudge sauce.

Chocolate hazelnut hot fudge sauce.

Biscoff hot fudge sauce.

I’m on a mission to try ’em all.  You know, for research.

But for this recipe, I used plain ol’ peanut butter.  Well, actually Peanut Butter and Co. Smooth Operator Peanut Butter, which is not actually quite so plain.  It’s perfectly silky smooth, which is the consistency I wanted for my fudge sauce.  Plus, it’s all natural: it doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oil.  Just a bit of palm fruit oil  to keep the peanut oil from separating.  This means no more stirring the oil back in!

I have to be honest with you here.  I ate more sauce straight off the spoon than any other way.  So much for my healthy eating plan.  But this might be totally worth it.

Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Sauce
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into chunks
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  1. Combine all ingredients, through the peanut butter, in the top of a double boiler (or a heat-proof bowl). Bring 2 inches of water in a saucepan under the double boiler. Once the water boils, remove the pan from the heat, and place the bowl with the chocolate mixture over the hot water.
  2. Let the mixture stand, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth - about 15 minutes. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Keep tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Warm it in the microwave just prior to serving.

      Thanks, Dorothy! It’s dangerous to have around, that’s for sure.

    Can I simply say what a relief to find somebody that really knows what they are discussing online.
    You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people must read this and understand this
    side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular since you surely have
    the gift.

    What does the corn syrup do in the equation? I am wondering what I can sub for it? We don’t use it.

    • Ashley

      You may try substituting agave or honey for the corn syrup.

    Hi Ashley,
    I am just starting to dip my toes in the baking pond, but your recipe for the Peanut Butter Hot Fudge sauce is making me feel like I’ve been baking for years! I followed your recipe because I needed a chocolate sauce for a Peanut Butter Ice Cream Fudge pie I was making for this past Christmas. I was disappointed by reviews posted for chocolate and/or fudge sauce from some of the well-known companies. Your fudge was the best, and I mean the BEST fudge I’ve ever tasted and it helped make my ice cream pie a hit! Thank you so much and have a great new year!

    This looks delicious! What could I use instead of corn syrup?

    • Ashley

      Hi Melanie–you could use agave or honey.

    Ashley, all your recipes are amazing! This looks like it could be the perfect hot fudge recipe…I’m on my way to the kitchen to make it right now…armed with a jar of Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter…the more chocolate, the better, right?

    • Ashley

      That’s my motto, Sue! And thanks so much for the sweet compliment!

    Just found this!! Gonna try it tonight! Thanks! I didn’t see or missed how much it makes. Trying to fill 8 4oz mason jars to give away. Thanks!


    I was just at Wal-Mart trying to find a new coffee
    maker (im not a passionate enthusiast, simply periodic, so
    i don’t understand the “lingo” yet.) and i saw a 12-cup coffee machine from BUNN for $99.00.

    I bought a 12-cup coffee maker from GE for $19.99.

    Whats the difference? Does BUNN have some type of technological secret that makes heating up water some how much better?

    I do not see how you can get better coffee without
    better premises. A coffee pot just heats water, no? recently posted..bunn-coffee-maker-review.blogspot.comMy Profile

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
