Everyone needs to have a go-to recipe for Hot Fudge Sauce. If you need a quick dessert for unexpected company you can just whip up a batch of brownies (or Cavity Maker Chocolate Cake if you are really ambitious) and serve them topped with ice cream and this sauce. So decadent, so easy.
Hot Fudge Sauce
1 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups white sugar
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla
Combine butter, cocoa, sugar and evap milk in a large saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and boil for 7 minutes, stirring frequently.
Carefully pour hot mixture into a blender and blend for 2 to 4 minutes.
Serve hot over ice cream, you can store this in a jar in the fridge just like store-bought fudge sauce.
