Hot fudge has to be one of my favorite things on this planet. On ice cream, drizzled over cake or brownies, mixed into milk – you name it, I love it. Sadly, I’d always relied on the kind from the jar to get my fix. But, as with some of my other favorite store-bought items, I wanted to learn to make it at home.
I came across this recipe right before Christmas, and made it for Andrew’s teachers at school – along with some peanut brittle. It’s everything that hot fudge sauce should be. Thick, smooth, and chocolaty. The best part? It only uses 3 ingredients, all of which are pantry staples in my home.
I’m still trying to decide if this is a good thing, or a bad thing…
Classic Hot Fudge Sauce
1/2 cup butter
8 ounces bittersweet or dark chocolate, chopped (chips work too)
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
Melt butter and chocolate in medium saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, add the sweetened condensed milk and stir to combine. Don’t worry, it will take a couple of minutes to fully incorporate. Just keep stirring!
Remove from heat and store in an airtight jar or container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
