The few minutes it takes to make your own Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce is so worth it! This Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce is creamy, thick, and so decadent! You’ll never go back to store bought again!
Does anyone else feel like adding that third child to the family is kind of like adding a straw that breaks the camel’s back?
As soon as my third baby was born he started screaming and didn’t stop for an entire year! I like to exaggerate sometimes I’m not even kidding you when I say that. I wish I was kidding! Ten years ago I would have given about anything to have been kidding!
He was rotten. Completely rotten!
I feel a little bad about it now but there were days when I let him just lay on the floor and scream. I mean there was nothing I could do about it anyway. I would just go to the other room and vacuum, for a long time…the sound of the vacuum was so peaceful!
Sometimes I even looked at him and told him I loved him and that it was a good thing he was so stinking cute or I might have had to give him away! Okay, I was exaggerating when I said that to him! Unfortunately I did say it though. 😥
I tried getting rid of every job I could think of but some things still had to be done; toilets needed cleaned, floor had to be mopped, and underwear had to be washed. I might have resorted to serving my family cold cereal three times a day.
The other task I couldn’t get rid of was being the secretary for our farm and I was getting behind. We already knew we couldn’t ask our employees to wait until our baby quit crying to get paid.
So we did the only rational thing…hired a girl to come to our home and watch our screaming baby one day a week! SHE. SAVED. MY. LIFE.
I’m not kidding about that either! She was so patient with him, or at least she pretended to be patient, and I did payroll, and showered, and other important stuff I just wasn’t getting done! She even watched the kids while I ran errands in town.
There is a reason I’m telling you this story on this Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce post!
Everytime my babysitter came over somehow the Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce magically started to disappear! Apparently, she grabbed a HUGE spoonful of Hot Fudge Sauce and ate it straight from the jar! I’m not going to lie I’ve done it before too!
The funny part is that after she got her fix of straight from the fridge, not so hot Hot Fudge Sauce she stuck the jar in the microwave to warm it up.
You see, my Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce sets up after it’s been in the fridge for awhile and gets really thick. So when she took a big spoonful out it left a big hole in the jar of hot fudge sauce.
So she warmed it up just enough to thin out and fill the hole back in!
It cracks me up that she thought she had to hide her little Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce addiction!
I’m here to tell you not all Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce recipes are created equal. They just aren’t! I’m in love with two different recipes, but this one is my favorite!
There are a million Homemade Hot Fudge recipes out there. Some of them have sweetened condensed milk, some have cocoa, some are super dark, some are too sweet, and some just aren’t sweet enough for me.
This Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce uses a combination of milk chocolate chips and semisweet chocolate chips…yes real chocolate in here!
Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce is incredibly easy to make and uses ingredients I bet you already have, which is a good thing because you might want to make it ASAP!
All you have to do is bring a few ingredients to a boil. Add chocolate chips to a blender. Pour the boiled mixture over the chocolate chips and grab your ice cream! It’s that easy!You guys it’s so smooth and creamy and dreamy! So scoop up some ice cream, add a warm brownie for extra decadence, and drizzle some Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce on top!
Or, grab a spoon and start devouring Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce straight from the jar!
And if you just had your third child, you are in my prayers! Try to be patient because they do grow out of it and I wouldn’t trade mine for anything in the world now!
The BEST Homeade Hot Fudge Sauce
- ½ cup butter
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 2 cup chocolate chips I use a combination of semisweet and milk chocolate
- 1 teaspoon vanilla optional
- dash salt optional
- Bring butter, corn syrup, and evaporated milk to a boil. Remove from the heat and add vanilla and salt if desired.
- Put chocolate chips in a blender. Pour butter mixture over chocolate chips in the blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. It happens fast, about 10 seconds should do it.
- Pour in a jar. Serve right away. Store leftovers in the fridge. I usually just warm up a little bit each time I want some hot fudge sauce.
- NOTE: I usually cut this recipe in half
- Airt tight container (a jar works great)
- Microwave the amount you want to use for about 10-20 seconds until soft and warm.
- To reheat the whole batch you can microwave until warmed through, or warm over the stovetop.
