Creamy, Dreamy Hot Fudge Sauce

If you’ve ever bought fudge sauce from the store and been disappointed, then prepared to be amazed. This homemade hot fudge sauce tastes like heaven and only takes minutes to make. I adapted this recipe from a slightly smaller one from my mother-in-law, so that’s why some of the numbers will seem kind of random.

Melt in the microwave:

4 oz. unsweetened chocolate

On the stove, melt completely:

⅔ c. butter

Add and stir till dissolved:

2 c. sugar

Stir and add until well-mixed:

1 to 1 1/2 c. evaporated milk (You can choose how thick you want the hot fudge sauce to be.)

Add and stir until combined:

13 ⅓ lg. marshmallows, quartered, or 133 small (3.3 oz or 93.3 g if you’d rather not count!)

Serve hot fudge sauce with your favorite ice cream or over ice cream roll cake. (This recipe makes the perfect amount to cover 2 ice cream roll cakes.) Leftovers can be kept in the fridge and reheated for a few seconds in the microwave. If you make a thicker sauce and the sugar starts to crystallize, add a splash of milk before heating it up. We’ve also eaten this delicious sauce on waffles. It tastes far better than any syrup!
