Rich and Creamy Hot Fudge

I love hot fudge.

I’m sure I am not alone in my feelings.  Hot fudge is a perfect companion for ice cream.

Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce recipe- so easy, and delicious

(Or cookies, cake, brownies, etc.  Ok, I could eat it on just about anything, or even plain…  I may have done that.)  I even used this on my strawberry bruschetta.  Yummy.

Anyway, you can find a use for it!

This sauce starts with melted chocolate and butter.

I used dark chocolate chips.  I have tried milk chocolate as well, but the sauce was very runny.  hot fudge 1

Add some powdered sugar.

And some evaporated milk. hot fudge 3

And after a few minutes it turns into this smooth, creamy, delicious hot fudge.
