Hot Fudge Sauce

What better way to start off a Monday morning than with chocolate right? I have been making things from scratch for my family for quite a while, and I am still trying hard to do as much as I can, and more, from scratch so I know exactly what goes in to our food.

Making condiments, like sauces, syrups, salad dressings and spice mixes, is not any harder than making a home cooked meal. In fact, in my experience so far, it is fairly easy, takes a minimal amount of time and usually the ingredients are not hard to find. You may even have them on hand in your pantry. I can't remember the last time I bought salad dressing or a seasoning packet for my meat.

This chocolate sauce is one of those things that I will never buy again and always make at home. I think the taste is FAR better than anything you can get in the store anyway. I have made it several times recently and let me tell you, it doesn't last long at our house. I've even snuck into the fridge a time or two and eaten it right off a spoon!!!

Hot Fudge Sauce
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 12-oz can evaporated milk
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

In a medium saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter over low heat. Gradually add evaporated milk and powdered sugar. Blend well and bring to a boil. Boil for 8 minutes, stirring constantly. Serve warm. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
