I've been making this hot fudge sauce for almost 40 years. I was in a Betty Crocker cookbook I received as a wedding present in 1972. I love it. It's very thick and fudgy and so easy to make.

Delish and simple to prepare. I increased the vanilla to 3 teaspoons to suit our tastes. Lovely thick and creamy fudge sauce - almost too thick to pour when cool. I made mine in the microwave. Melting/ Cooking for 2 minutes at a time. Be careful to watch as it has the tendency to boil over. Served with a scoop each of homemade vanilla ice cream and strawberry sorbet. Rave reviews from our guests. Thanks for posting.

Easy, quick recipe for rich, thick hot fudge sauce made from ingredients in the pantry. With semisweet chocolate, this has a darker chocolate than other fudge sauces which I preferred with ice cream. Stores well in the fridge and reheats easily. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Excellent sauce! I tried making it with fat free evaporated milk and it was a little thin. But, when I made it with regular, it was perfect. The flavor was fantastic both ways. So, if you are trying to cut calorie, use the FF and add a little cornstarch. We especially liked it combined with Peanut Butter Sauce on sundaes.

We loved the consistency and texture of this sauce, but it was too bitter-sweet for us. I just added an extra 1/2 cup of sugar and it was perfect. Thanks for a great, versatile recipe!

I was looking for a fudge sauce to drizzle over a cheesecake and I decided to try this one.It is quite tasty and easy to make.I was hoping for something a little thicker.I have it in the fridge now,perhaps once it is cooled more it will be a bit fudgier.Thanks for posting.

I'm not much of a chocolate fan...my husband is! But we both thought this sauce was delicious! I even passed up my usual strawberry topping to have a second helping of this on my ice cream! Thank you so much for a recipe I know I will make again and again!!

I forgot to post that in using it for my chocolate fountain, the sauce was thick and would have had a hard time getting through the fountain. So I add 1 can of Hershey's syrup per batch to thin it out. The owners manual for the fountain said to mix chocolate chips with cooking oil, (blech), so the syrup thins this recipe without taking away any flavor.
