Pantry Staple Hot Fudge Sauce

Hot Fudge Sauce

I seriously looooooove me some hot fudge sauce - it just takes dessert to the next level to drizzle or smother it in a creamy, decadent chocolate sauce.  I love it to the point where I may sneak a spoonful out of the jar every now and then just because I need a pick me up! 

This version is not only quick and easy, but it is made pretty much from pantry staples which means you can have it made and be pouring it over cazookies or ice cream, (or both), in no time at all.  It also makes a great dipping/drizzling sauce for fruit skewers!  We love to skewer fruit with donut holes or pound cake and then serve this on the side.

This hot fudge sauce takes just a few minutes to throw together.  You literally throw everything in a pan and whisk away as it melts.  Just don't walk away from it or you may end up cleaning up a big, bubbly, sticky mess off your stove!  (I may or may not be speaking from experience here.)  Blending is optional, because you certainly can serve it after it's finished boiling, but throwing it through the blender makes it silky smooth and helps it thicken faster.

  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup sifted cocoa powder
  • 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  1. Combine the butter, sugar, cocoa powder and evaporated milk in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 7 minutes while whisking frequently. 
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.  
  3. Transfer to blender and blend for about 2 minutes, (make sure to remove the center piece of the blender top and cover with a towel any time you blend hot liquids.)  
  4. Serve immediately or let sit until ready to use.  Store in the refrigerator and reheat as needed.
