  • For the fudge sauce: Combine the semisweet chocolate, heavy cream, light corn syrup, sugar and cocoa powder in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is melted.

  • Reduce the heat to low, carefully add the heavy cream, stir to incorporate and simmer until smooth.

  • Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the butter and pinch of salt and cool the caramel sauce slightly before serving.
