  6. Add chocolates and butter and let sit until melted, about 2 minutes.
  7. Return heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, until glossy and smooth.

I made a half batch of this to go on my chocoholic DH's ice cream (Mayfield Brown Cow). I used regular milk and chocolate morsels (for the chocolate) and it came out great! Thanks for the evening smiles!

Wonderful hot fudge sauce!! Next time I might use just 1/2 of the sugar and not thicken it as much as I did, my fault. I only made 1/4 cup to served with my grilled strawberries and marshmallows!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for 123 Tag Game.
