Hot Fudge Sauce

Low Fat Recipe

This hot fudge sauce, sans cocoa butter (cocoa powder is used instead), has a slightly powdery finish and less richness than its higher-fat counterparts, but it will certainly satisfy chocolate cravings.

Hot Fudge Sauce on a spoon


5 tablespoons warm water
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon arrowroot, mixed with 2 tablespoons water

Recipe Directions

Pour the water, cocoa powder and sugar into a small saucepan and stir over low heat until dissolved.

Remove from heat.

Stir in arrowroot mixture, return to the heat and whisk until thickened.

Remove from the heat and whisk until smooth.

Recipe Note

Unsweetened cocoa powder does not contain cocoa butter, and so has substantially less fat than chocolate.
