Hot Fudge Sauce at a Fraction of the Grocery Store Price!

hot-fudge-sauceIt’s summer time, ice cream time…and even if you don’t like to eat sugar, you no doubt have enjoyed ice cream!  It’s part of being an American, isn’t it?

Here’s a great, tried-and-true recipe for hot fudge: the thick, creamy, milk-chocolate-delicious fudge sauce that cost $3.99 or more at the grocery store. This recipe makes nearly two jars in 5 minutes, really!

No high fructose corn syrup, no trans fats, no modified food starch!  Now…if I can just find a way to replace the sugar…

Hot Fudge Sauce

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup flour (whole wheat or white, either is fine)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 large can (12 oz.) evaporated milk

Put all ingredients into a saucepan and whisk over low heat until well blended.  Turn up heat and boil for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. If you take it off the heat after about a minute, you will have the kind of Hershey’s type chocolate syrup that stirs easily  into milk.  Boil for approx. 3 minutes and you’ll have hot fudge sauce.  Boil for 4-5 minutes and you’ll have the thick kind of fudge that you have to spoon out of the jar.
