Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

This stuff is seriously the best. Once you whip up a batch and put it on your ice cream you will never buy Hershey's again.

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 8 oz. semisweet chocolate chips (3/4 of a bag)
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Melt butter and chocolate chips over low heat.

Add milk and increase heat to medium.

Using whisk, add powdered sugar. Heat until a gentle boil is achieved, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat, add vanilla.
Will keep several weeks in the frig.

The Iowa Wife

Welcome to The Iowa Wife blog! I wanted to start a blog to, well, I just  wanted to. I figured as much as I do, or think I do, maybe someone would fine something that they can do. I am always cooking, baking, sewing, crafting, and inventing. I am a huge craft-acholic. worst addition. Stay tuned for recipes, crafts, and home improvement projects. I will try my best to take pictures to create a tutorial instead of just typing the recipe out. Besides, pictures add a little more interest!
