Hot Fudge Sauce

I love to make homemade hot fudge a few times a year as a special treat.  This Hot Fudge Sauce is best served slightly warm or at room temperature and will keep for a long time in the fridge.  I like to make a batch to serve with ice cream for a group gathering – one batch has ~20 servings.

Hot Fudge Sauce 

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 5.33 oz evaporated milk
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar (measured and then sifted, or stirred with a whisk)
  • 6 squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Using a double boiler (or a large skillet placed on top of a pot with boiling water – that is what I use), melt the butter and chocolate, stirring with a wooden spoon.  
  2. Add the milk and stir with the wooden spoon until combined.
  3. Using a whisk or wooden spoon, add the powdered sugar a half a cup or so at a time, stirring to combine, and whisking out any clumps.
  4. Remove from heat.  Add vanilla. Stir vigorously.
