Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop: Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe

I love stopping for a treat at Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop in Downtown Disney.
They have the most unbelievable hot fudge sauce! I have posted 2 recipes for it below.
The first one is from Ghirardelli's official website
and the second one is my version that I make at home.
You can try either or both, they are equally delicious!!




Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop: Hot Fudge Sauce (from their website)
*makes 2 cups


Ingredients:

4 ounces 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Bar
4 tablespoons butter, cut into chunks
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions:

   In a heavy saucepan, combine the chocolate (cut into 1/4" pieces), butter, sugar, water and corn syrup. Stir the mixture continuously over medium heat until the chocolate and butter have melted and the sugar is dissolved. When the sauce comes to a boil, lower heat and continue boiling gently for 10 minutes. Remove the thickened sauce from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Store covered in the refrigerator. To reheat, place in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium for 6 - 8 minutes, stirring after 3 minutes.

   In a saucepan, stir together cream, sugar, cocoa and butter. Cook on medium-high heat until butter is melted and ingredients are well incorporated. Continue to cook for 8 - 10 minutes, stirring continuously, until thickened and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour into containers and store in refrigerator. Heat 10-15 seconds in a microwave-safe dish when ready to use. Serve hot over ice cream, brownies or cake.
