Hot Fudge Sauce

July 27, 2011

When I’m feeling especially nice (Which is often! Honest!) and we have something celebration-worthy at our house (good grades, excellent choir concert or just when everyone survives the week) I make homemade hot fudge sauce for my kids.  It’s made out of things that you can keep on hand in your cupboards, and it tastes oh-so-much better than most of what you can buy at the grocery store.  The next time your kids make it to the end of the day without scratching each other’s eyes out (is this only a problem in my house?) throw an ice cream party.  Bring out the ice cream, crack open a can of dulce de leche and stir up this hot fudge sauce.

You’re welcome.

Hot Fudge Sauce

1 3/4 cups powdered sugar

1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Over medium heat, combine powdered sugar, evaporated milk, chocolate chips and butter in a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil for 8 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Set aside to cool.
