Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe

Oh in Honor or National Ice Cream Month in July, I am adding my hot fudge sauce to the plethora or recipes out there in blogdom.

Hot Fudge Sauce

Last night for our big family gathering I bought buckets of vanilla ice cream and wanted to try the Magic Shell recipe at Skip To My Lou. It looks so lovely and chocolaty BUT last night I needed the Hot Fudge Sauce to do what Hot Fudge sauce can do and I wasn't sure it Magic shell would cut it so I fell back on my old favorite. hee hee So here it is so you can celebrate National Ice Cream Month for your self.

Aunt Lucy's Hot Fudge Sauce

1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 (5 oz can) of evaporated milk (can use whole milk if you have to)
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Boil the butter, sugar and milk together for about 6 to 8 minutes. Watch it so it doesn't boil over. That is the worst mess ever and a very sad waste.
Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips and stir till smooth.

If there are any leftovers, store in an air tight container in the fridge.

*** Variation ***

I like to add about 1/4 cup peanut butter to the sauce right before I add the chocolate chips. That is most tasty on vanilla ice cream, let me tell you!!!

Some of my friends and family have asked for this recipe and so I am posting it here. Well you can't post without a picture so I had to dish some up this afternoon so there would be a picture and you don't put your best stoneware bowls your big brother makes for you in the freezer. SO..... I had to take one for the team and eat it. I wanted you to know how much I DO sacrifice for you, my loyal peeps.

Delicious. I've made it twice, first with 2% milk and then with evaporated milk. Although it was good with the 2% it was heavenly when I actually used the right ingredients. Wow! I love the glossy texture as well as the taste. Thanks so much for posting the recipe!
