Love this! Quick and easy with ingredients I almost always have on hand. Sometimes I add a small amount of chocolate chips at the end for a little richer flavor.
While this was tasty enough, it was more like a fudgy pudding than a hot fudge sauce. It wasn't what I would consider a hot fudge sauce that I like to put on my ice cream.
Insanity! My goodness this was awesome. I am vegan and it's very difficult to find a hot fudge recipe w/o evaporated milk. My kids wanted sundaes on a whim when I was out of both cocoa and vanilla so I needed to sub in a little.
I used 4 oz of dark chocolate, decreased the butter to 2T and the sugar to 3/4 c (probably could have cut it to 1/2). I subbed a wee bit of chopped-to-dust vanilla bean and did add 1/8 t sea salt to counteract the sweet a bit. I can't wait to try it with a little cayenne or chipotle to add a kick.
This is a keeper recipe for my family. Thank you for posting!
In need of hot fudge sauce, and no time to run to town, I decided that somebody should have posted a good recipe.................I was right!!! I just made the second batch, the first one didn't last too long. We really enjoyed it, and will in the future, I'm sure.
Thanks for posting!
My family loved this. I may add a little less cocoa next time, which is just personal preference. We put it over ice cream, but my four year old loved it best as a dip for pretzels and apples. Easy to make with things I always keep on hand!
This suits our tastes perfectly. Just enough sugar to balance out the cocoa. Comes together very quickly, so keep an eye on it. ;) I made this to use on Chocolate Peanut Butter Bombes but since it's not ready yet, DH sampled it over cubes of pound cake topped with Cool Whip. Very, very yummy. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe.
