Olive Oil Hot Fudge Ice Cream Sauce

12 Servings

Total Time
10 mins

Though it may seem like an unusual ingredient, olive oil gives this dark chocolate sauce incredible depth of flavor. And the sauce takes only 10 minutes to make.

 ¾ cup very good-quality, fruity extra-virgin olive oil such as an Arbequina
 ½ cup heavy whipping cream
 ½ cup whole milk
 ½ cup light corn syrup
  tsp kosher salt
 1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

In a medium saucepan, combine olive oil, cream, milk, corn syrup, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until hot to touch, about 5 minutes.


Add chocolate chips and blend until smooth, using an immersion blender (or reduce heat to low and whisk until very smooth). Serve warm and stir before using. Make ahead: Chill airtight up to 2 weeks; microwave until pourable.
