Making hot fudge sauce is relatively straightforward. You just need cream to keep it flowing, light corn syrup for body and shininess without making it too sweet (that's where the brown sugar comes in), cocoa powder for the rich fudgy taste, and regular chocolate to smooth out the cocoa. The end result is much more interesting than anything you'd buy at the grocery store.
