3 Ingredient Mocha Fudge Sauce


3 Ingredient Mocha Fudge Sauce

I am a sauce/condiment person. Let me explain.

I like spaghetti but it has to be swimming in sauce.

Chips are good, but they are awesome with loads of guacamole.

I don’t even really like ice cream unless it’s buried below spoonfuls of fudge sauce.

Basically, I only eat “real” food so I have an excuse to gobble up the add ons.

Easy Mocha Fudge Frosting

When no one is looking I make frosting just to eat with a spoon. And I whip up mocha fudge sauce because…well, because it’s awesome!

My first batch was made using brown sugar. The flavors of the molasses, chocolate, and coffee together were incredible. The brown sugar left the sauce with a bit of a grainy texture, but I didn’t mind that. It tasted amazing –  like mocha brownie batter! If you want a silkier sauce, by all means use powdered sugar.

I ate the whole bowl, by myself. I dipped mint Oreos in half the batch and the other half I ate with a spoon. I recommend both :)

*If you add a bit more sugar and a bit less coffee, this makes a great frosting too!

This decadent mocha fudge sauce is so easy to make and uses only 3 ingredients. Delicious by the spoonfuls or on ice cream.


  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar (can sub 1 cup brown sugar )
  • 2-4 tablespoons brewed coffee (hot)


Step 1
In a medium bowl stir together cocoa and sugar. Add hot coffee 1 Tbs at a time, beating well until it reaches the desired thickness. I kept mine thick like a hot fudge sauce,but feel free to thin it out more like a syrup, if desired.
*If using brown sugar, beat for 5 minutes. Together with the heat from the coffee, this will help reduce graininess in the sauce, though it will not completely dissolve. I enjoyed the flavor from the brown sugar, personally ;) Serve immediately.

    Oh, that looks fabulously decadent!! I’m the same way. Meat must have gravy, fries are only a vehicle for fry sauce, BBQ must have sauce :)

  8. This. Is. Genius. And I love you so stinkin’ much it hurts! Well, not really the hurting part, but the loving part yes! This sauce looks incredible, Steph. And three-ingredients is both genius and dangerous because like you, I would totally eat this bad boy with a spoon and no regrets! Haha.
