Delicious Hot Fudge Sauce

I will say it--this is the Best Hot Fudge Sauce I have ever eaten.  It is made with items in my pantry so warm, gooey fudge is never far away. If you keep vanilla ice cream in your freezer Hot Fudge Sundaes can be your Family Home Evening treat tonight. Use top quality semi-sweet chocolate and this just might become a family favorite too.

Hot Fudge Sauce
In a saucepan gently melt :
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (no, milk chocolate does not work)
1/4 cup buttter
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup canned, evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed)
Bring mixture to a boil and simmer for 8 minutes. Stir occasionally.
For a change add 1/4 cup peanut butter to sauce after it has cooked.
Serve over ice cream, top with sliced almonds. Go wild and add sliced bananas, whipped cream and a cherry. It's all good.

"Always serve too much hot fudge sauce on hot fudge sundaes.
 It makes people overjoyed, and puts them in your debt."

Mom's right, this is the best hot fudge sauce ever! I've been making it for years! I like to top my sundaes with roasted peanuts. I did have to turn my pan down to the lowest setting after bringing it to a simmer for the 8 minutes, otherwise it turned hard here at low elevation.

Yum! Seriously...all hot fudge sundaes MUST have extra hot fudge. It's a requirement for me, for sure! :o)

And to think we had Hershey's syrup on our ice cream for FHE tonight. Shameful! It will never happen again!

I think I do have all those ingredients in the pantry, and hot fudge is something I don't usually think of making. I'll have to try it!

This looks like the perfect chocolate sauce for me! I just wish I found it earlier!

When I saw this recipe I had to check it out because I swear I have the best hot fudge recipe - and imagine that- it's about the same thing only I use powdered sugar. I eat this stuff by the spoonfuls, sometimes I add a little ice cream. I can't wait to try your other recipes!
