This has been my go-to fudge sauce for years. Never fails to turn out the creamiest sauce EVER. If you follow the instructions, you can't fail. NOTE: If you want flavored chocolate, other extracts can be added in place of the vanilla. Peppermint extract is a nice addition.
I saw this on the new recipes page, and I decided to try it. I thought this tasted good, especially for using fairly common cubard staples. I used the calculate button and made 2 servings, which ended up being easily like 4-5 servings. I only had semi-sweet 1 oz squares and just used that and regular milk. The key to these type of fudge sauces is to make sure to never cook them above low, as suggested, the entire time. On my stove that is button 3 typically. Temperatures above that will turn the sugar/sauce gritty. Tastes good with just a little on some vanilla ice cream. On the ice cream it also thickens up, and strangely tastes a little less overly sweet.
Great recipe! This is what I did different: Used only 2 1/2 cups sugar, and only about 3/4 the can of evap. milk. Also I alternated adding the sugar and milk into the pan, it kept the thickness more even. Thanks for the recipe!
It is very easy ours turned out, soft and smooth! Thank you so much!
I made this recipe for a group of ladies and I was totally pleased with the results. It was a very creamy, smooth chocolate chocolate sauce. It headed up very well and was wonderful over ice cream. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It was exactly what I was looking for.
This recipe has everything you could want. It is made with ingredients readily available in your pantry, it has a wonderful chocolate flavor, and has a beautifully smooth and glossy finish.
This was good, however next time I'm going to use the suggestions of what lovetocook said they did. Reduce the sugar and the evaporated milk. It was tasty and delicious, in fact, I eat it now currently straight from the jar. :) But, it was a tad too sweet for me.
Great hot fudge sauce. It took mine longer than 7 minutes to thicken enough though.
