Unforgettable fudgy brownies are richly decadent and unbelievably easy, all mixed up in one big microwave-safe bowl.  Enjoy these dreamy brownies freshly baked, at room temperature, or frozen.

These are the kind of brownies that are perfect for homemade brownie sundaes with hot fudge on top. For a non-dairy brownie sundae, swap out real butter for a plant-based type like Country Crock Plant Butter or Violife in the brownie recipe and use a non-dairy ice cream topped with Hershey’s Simply 5 Chocolate Syrup or the homemade dairy-free hot fudge recipe on this post.

Dairy-Free Hot Fudge

How To Make Dairy-Free Hot Fudge:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk ~ I use Macadamia Milk
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons of plant-based butter ~ I use Country Crock Plant Butter.
  • 1/2 cup allergy-friendly chocolate chips ~ I use Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch ~ arrowroot powder for corn-free
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons non-dairy milk ~ I use Macadamia Milk

Add sugar, cocoa powder, and salt to a small saucepan.
Whisk in non-dairy milk and bring to a simmer on medium heat, stirring constantly.
Reduce heat to low and stir in non-dairy butter and chocolate chips.
In a small bowl, like a custard dish, mix non-dairy milk and cornstarch together.
Stir the chocolate mixture on low until the fudge sauce thickens.
Remove from heat and let cool to a desired temperature.
Store in the refrigerator covered for one week.
