Easiest Hot Fudge Sauce

For those times when you want some yummy hot fudge sauce, but don’t have any more chocolate on hand to make it.

Easiest Hot Fudge Sauce
original recipe

1 stick butter
6 heaping Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 can sweetened condensed milk
a few Tbsp. milk, if needed to thin out sauce

Heat a small saucepan over medium high heat. Add the butter and let butter melt and start to bubble. Turn off the heat. Add the cocoa powder and whisk well to remove any lumps. Add the sweetened condensed milk and continue whisking. If sauce is too thick, add a little regular milk.

Serve warm. Store in an airtight container for about a week.

    I’ve only met you once when I was in NY visiting my best friend Wendy and you were nice enough to come watch the kids while we went to see the Rockettes, but I just have to tell you how much I LOVE your blog. Your recipes are divine and I plan on trying some of them. Wendy is very lucky to have such great friends in NY. Happy Birthday!
