Heaven's Hot Fudge

Heaven is Smiling Above

There are few things better in life than chocolate, and this hot fudge is full of rich and oh-so-lovely chocolatey goodness. I would say it's on the darker side of the spectrum. I don't like fudge that is too sweet or else it's just too much when added to the lightness of ice cream.

This recipe is exceptionally easy since it deals with cocoa and not the actual melting of chocolate. Your children could definitely help with this one until it starts to boil. A parent should stir it then.

This is way better than store-bought. It's frugal and fabulous! Use the leftover milk in your next batch of mashed potatoes for extra creaminess if you don't have another recipe for it.

So, get out your best vanilla bean ice cream and get ready for a decadent treat! I love it when the fudge is hot enough to partially melt the ice cream. If you are determined to eat it cold - just skip the ice cream. It's great straight from the fridge like a pudding or, as in the picture, with some whipped cream. Enjoy!



Heaven's Hot Fudge


3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1. Combine the sugar and cocoa in a small saucepan. (Regular granulated sugar will work, too.) 
2. Blend in the milk with a whisk stirring constantly over medium heat until boiling. 
3. Boil and stir one minute. 
4. Remove from the heat. Stir in the butter and vanilla until the butter has melted into the chocolate. 
5. Don't wait for it to cool! Serve immediately over a bowl of ice cream. For extra fun, chop in some banana before you drizzle the hot fudge in the bowl.

  5. We usually make our hot fudge with semi-sweet chocolate chips melted with a can of sweetened condensed milk, then add some milk to make it not so thick. I've pinned your recipe as we always tend to have cocoa in the house, but not always chocolate chips. I'd like to try it as sometimes I get a craving for hot fudge.

    1. I have a recipe like that, too. It's great. But also like you I'm more likely to have cocoa than chips. Besides, I like to save my chips for cookies! I hope you enjoy it!

  23. Yum and yum again! I love the idea of this...I imagine the confectioner's sugar, with its cornstarch, gives this lovely thickness. We've got a tub of vanilla ice cream left over from an ice cream social in the freezer that I'm thinking is calling this sauce's name! :) Stopping by from Full Plate Thursday!
