KANSAS CITY, Mo. — FOX4’s Karli Ritter is joined by Roth Living Executive Chef Matt Chatfield to show you this sweet, chocolatey treat!

It’s hot outside and frozen treats or ice cream are a must have to stay cool. This topping will add a blast of chocolate flavor!


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 6 tablespoons butter, chopped
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt or ¼ teaspoon table salt
  • 1 cup Dutch processed Cocoa powder (Brut or Extra Dark)


  1. Over medium heat, bring the heavy cream and butter to a simmer, stirring until the butter melts.
  2. Add both sugars and stir for 2 minutes till dissolved.
  3. Now add the salt and cocoa powder, stirring for a minute or two till all lumps are gone, and the mixture is a nice smooth consistency.
  4. Remove from heat and serve immediately over your favorite frozen dessert or ice cream.
  5. Can be stored in an airtight container, refrigerated for 2 weeks.
  6. When reheating in microwave or on stove, you may need to add a little water to thin as it will thicken when cooled.
