Vegan Hot Fudge Sauce (GF)

This hot chocolate fudge sauce is super delicious, silky and smooth. The key ingredient is vegan cream cheese that makes it irresistible. It’s also very easy to make and you need just a couple of minutes and only 6 ingredients.

I love having some vegan vanilla ice cream with a generous drizzle of this hot fudge sauce. It’s perfect to drizzle on crepes, like these vegan walnut crepes. Use it on any other sweet you desire.

Vegan Hot Fudge Sauce (GF)

This hot fudge sauce is silky, smooth and irresistible. It's a delicious combination of cocoa powder, coconut cream and vegan cream cheese. Perfect as a drizzle on vegan ice cream, vegan sundae, vegan crepes or any other sweet but honestly so good you could eat it straight from the jar.

    does the cream cheese make it taste like a cream cheese frosting? or impart a similar taste to the hot fudge?
    as a person who doesn’t like cream cheese frosting will this still be good?

      Yes, I would say that it is similar to the chocolate cream cheese frosting but vegan cream cheese is not super pronounced where it would overtake the main flavour.
