Hot Fudge Sauce

Hot Fudge SauceI’m not sure if there’s a better dessert than vanilla ice cream topped with hot fudge sauce and sprinkled with toasted coconut.  Other than maybe a banana split topped with hot fudge sauce and sprinkled with toasted coconut.  I’m fairly in love with toasted coconut.  More on that another time.

This sauce is everything it should be:  rich and chocolatey, velvety smooth, and sooo delicious when warm.  It only takes about 15 minutes to whip up a batch and the ingredients are common kitchen staples.  So gather your supplies including ice cream and toppings and serve this up soon.  Your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone else you might invite over will love you forever.

Hot Fudge Sauce

Yield: 1-1/2 cups

Hot Fudge Sauce


  • 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 5-ounce can evaporated milk {2/3 cup}


  1. In a small saucepan melt the chocolate and butter over medium low heat.
  2. Add the sugar.
  3. Gradually stir in the evaporated milk and stir to dissolve the sugar.
  4. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low.
  5. Boil gently for 8 minutes, stirring frequently.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Cool slightly.
  8. Serve warm over ice cream.

Once you taste a hot fudge sauce recipe such as this one, you’ll never want to buy it from the store again.  I promise.
