Easy Fudge Sauce Recipe - make this simple chocolate ice cream topping in five minutes with only four ingredients. Then host your own Ice Cream Cake Sundae Party. #AD<

In my family, we are all about ice cream cake. You can have your sheet cakes and layer cakes and even your cupcakes, just give me layers of chocolate and vanilla ice cream with a thick pile of crunchies in the middle.

When I ask my kids what kind of cake they want for their birthdays, they always want ice cream cake. My hubby picks one up for my birthday every year since we are usually celebrating on Thanksgiving, and he knows I don’t want to stick my candles in the pumpkin pie.

And I promised my sister that somehow I’d invent some sort of platform or clear cabinet-type thing so that she could have an ice cream wedding cake. I have less than a year to figure out that one.

In fact, since my aunt and one of my bridesmaids had birthdays very close to our wedding, we ordered an ice cream cake to serve at our rehearsal dinner. Except the restaurant accidentally put the cake in the fridge instead of the freezer.

Womp. Womp.

Whether you are getting ready for a graduation party, Father’s Day celebration, or a birthday bash, I have a much less disastrous and super fun and easy idea for your next festive gathering. Here’s the first ingredient…

My super simple, four ingredient, five minute Easy Fudge Sauce Recipe!

All you need is heavy cream, cocoa powder, corn syrup or brown rice syrup, and chocolate chips, and you have a rich, fudgy topping in no time. You can serve it as hot fudge, let it cool a bit for an extra-thick topping, or make it in advance and just warm it a bit in a pot or the microwave.

How to Throw an Ice Cream Cake Sundae Party

 

Then grab your favorite toppings, from sprinkles and chocolate chips to caramel and nuts. Of course, you can’t forget the whipped cream and a cherry. Then forget about the mess and fuss of trying to scoop ice cream for a crowd and just open the freezer to pull out the last and most important ingredient…

Easy Chocolate Fudge Sauce

 Host your own Ice Cream Cake Sundae Party with this easy Fudge Sauce Recipe made in five minutes with only four ingredients! Recipe yields about 3/4 cup fudge sauce.
Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 15 mins
Servings: 6

Ingredients

For the Fudge Sauce

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup or corn syrup
  • 2 oz semisweet chocolate chopped, or about 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

For the Ice Cream Cake Sundae Party

  • one Carvel® Ice Cream Cake from I Love Ice Cream Cakes
  • your favorite ice cream sundae toppings - caramel sauce sprinkles, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, whipped cream, maraschino cherries, etc.

Instructions

For the Easy Fudge Sauce:

  • Whisk together the heavy cream, cocoa powder, and brown rice or corn syrup in a small pot until smooth.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 3-5 minutes, until thickened slightly.
  • Remove from the heat and add the chocolate. Stir until smooth.
  • Cool slightly and use immediately, or store in the refrigerator. It will be thick once chilled, so if you want it pourable, you may need to warm it slightly.

  • Set out bowls and dishes of Easy Fudge Sauce and your favorite ice cream sundae toppings.
  • Serve slices of your favorite cake from I Love Ice Cream Cakes and let everyone choose their toppings to make their own sundaes.

    Was going to flip this sauce to vanilla fudge sauce. I can use white choc late chips and corn syrup but what to substitute for cocoa? Any thoughts? Thanks??

  2. Terry

    Will this work if I put it on a home made ice cream cake and pop it into the freezer?
    I don’t want something that will freeze solid like a rock!

    1. Brianne Cupcakes & Kale Chips

      Hi Vee – As a substitute for corn syrup, you can use an equal amount of brown rice syrup or agave syrup. I hope that helps!

  3. Your fudge sauce looks incredible!
    And wow to the story about the ice cream cake being put in the fridge instead of the freezer. That must have been slightly disastrous! 😉

  4. Oww… this one looks so tasty! You know I’m much tougher against sweet things like this, but if I show it to my wife I know we will both end up eating it today 😀

    1. Brianne Cupcakes & Kale Chips

      All things in moderation, Brian. I hope you and your wife enjoy the easy fudge sauce recipe!
