Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

If you’ve never made homemade hot fudge sauce you’re missin’ out on a serious treat! It’s incredibly easy to make and the taste beats anything you’ve ever tried from the store.

There’s a good chance that if you check your pantry you’ll find what you need to make a batch tonight. If not, no worries…There are only a few easy-to-find ingredients needed so you can grab ’em on your next grocery store run. Trust me, it’ll be worth it.

What you need:

What you do:

  • Combine milk, chocolate, and salt in a boiler.
  • Cook over medium-low heat.
  • Stir constantly until chocolate melts and mixture thickens (about 7 minutes).
  • Remove from heat.
  • Add water in small increments and stir until the sauce reaches the consistency that you like.
  • Add vanilla, if using, and stir.

The trick to making this sauce is maintaining enough self-control not to eat it by the spoonful. Right out of the pot. Before you serve the ice cream. 😉 I’m slightly, but not completely, ashamed to admit that I’ve not always been successful in that endeavor.

And there’s no need to limit this hot fudge to just ice cream! A couple of ideas that come to mind are cheesecake topping and a dip for strawberries or marshmallows.

Of course, I’m open to other possibilities. What other ways would YOU use this hot fudge sauce? Feel free to share them in the comments!
