Hot Fudge recipe

My mom makes a DELICIOUS ice cream cake and I thought it would be good for our friends up here to experience it! As I was assembling the ingredients I realized that one cannot buy hot fudge here in the Great White North. Imagine my dismay! (Okay, no, it wasn't that bad.) So being the resourceful gal that I am I decided to make some. Plus, the cake just wouldn't be the same without the hot fudge! I searched the web and found this!

Hot Fudge Sauce
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
4 squares (1 oz. each) semi-sweet baking chocolate
2 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a saucepan heat milk, chocolate and butter until chocolate is melted. Add vanilla and stir.
Done. Isn't that so simple? And it's really good! It's the perfect consistency, not gritty at all, a wonderful chocolaty brown color, and oh so yummy!

I'm quite thankful for this little "consumer hiccup". I don't think I'll ever buy store bought hot fudge again... well, I can't up here... but still, you get my drift!


  1. Renee, are you serious?!?!? Of course you can buy hot fudge up here. Just because we're Canadian doesn't mean we don't understand the value of ooey gooey hot fudgey chocolate caressing our chilly vanilla ice cream! Silly girl! But, I agree, homemade is better anyway! If you're ever in a pinch and need to lower your standards to buy hot fudge, give me a call and I'll walk you through the Super Store directly to the hot fudge!

  2. No Jen... are YOU serious?! I asked Betty if she's ever found any up here - nope. I asked Holly the same thing - nope. I checked Superstore and Co-op, but have to admit I stopped short of asking a worker where it was located! So you earn a gold star for the day! And yes... I'd love to take the Superstore tour with you sometime!!
