This Mexican Hot Fudge Sauce is perfect over ice cream or as a dip for fruit. You can add a little (or a lot) of heat to this decadent, rich homemade hot fudge sauce recipe. This post is sponsored by Kroger. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I’m lucky enough to live in the great state of Texas which means that I don’t have to travel far to get my TexMex fix. Taco Tuesday is a weekly occurrence in our house. My kids have grown up eating Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas and cut their teeth on chips with Homemade Salsa.
I’ve mastered recreating many of our favorite Mexican dishes at home, but one thing I always treat myself to when we eat out is Mexican desserts. I love traditional favorites like sopapillas and flan, but I especially enjoy desserts with chocolate and cinnamon.
Adding cinnamon to chocolate has become known as “Mexican Chocolate.” Similar to how adding coffee to chocolate intensifies the flavors, so does adding cinnamon and spices like chili powder or cayenne. Though most of what is found in the US today is actually cassia (Cinnamomum cassia) and not “true cinnamon” (Cinnamomum zeylanicam) like what is used in many Mexican dishes.
Adding cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne takes this already decadent hot fudge sauce over the top. It gives it that little something extra that makes you wonder what the secret ingredient is. I only add a pinch of cayenne, but you could certainly increase that if you prefer a little more heat.
This Mexican Hot Fudge Sauce is perfect to spoon over Private Selection Double Vanilla Ice Cream (my favorite)! Drizzle it over cookies or brownies, or use it as a dip for fresh fruit. I like to stock up on our favorite locally-sourced fruit and vegetables (from Texas and Mexico) at Kroger, so we always have some on hand for recipes like my Mango Salsa.
