Print Friendly Version

Enjoy this low-FODMAP hot fudge sauce (its a low-FODMAP liquid chocolate) as a low-FODMAP chocolate topping for your kids low-FODMAP ice-cream, or layer it on a low-FODMAP chocolate cake or low-FODMAP mud pie dessert. It is also dairy free and suitable for vegans. So delectable!

Chocolate goes great with anything 🙂

Note: This syrup is more liquid at hot temperatures, but will thicken over your cool ice cream, or in the refrigerator.

  1. How long is the shelf life for this? Or how long will it last in refrigerator, if it needs to be refrigerated?

    1. Thanks for your question Christy!
      This does need to be refrigerated, and it will firm up so we recommend warming before use. It should last about 3 months, longer in the freezer. We added that to the directions! Good luck 🙂

  2. Love it!

    Awesome recipe! Any ideas on what a white chocolate version of this would be? I found dairy free white chocolate chips & I really want to make a sauce! Thanks for any tips

    1. Thanks for the comment!!
      White chocolate is a bit different in terms of its quality variation and melting characteristics. Plus you don’t have cocoa to use to add flavor.
      However, we do have a vegan white chocolate recipe that is low-FODMAP if you want to try making it a little less thick.
      Also you can make a white chocolate ganache, using white chocolate and heavy cream (or canned coconut cream would also work). Good luck!
