Hot Fudge

Recently we've had a guest who comes over regularly who is gluten intolerant   Preparing dessert for her I was dabbling with things like Creme Brulle and gluten-free black bean brownies (total failure).  Finally I decided that I would just make things easy on myself and we'd have ice cream sundaes -they're delicious, gluten-free and easy.

This is my go-to hot fudge (which is really my mom's go-to hot fudge and I'm recording it here so I don't have to call her for the recipe anymore). My mom normally makes twice this much but I can't be trusted to keep it around the house because I've been known to eat it straight out of the container.

6 oz. Chocolate chips (1/2 bag)
1/2 c. Butter
2 c. Powdered sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 1/3 c. Evaporated Milk

Melt the butter and chocolate chips together over low heat. Add the powdered sugar and stir--it will be very thick and hard to stir.  Add the evaporated milk and bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly.  Boil for 2 min and continue to stir.  Add vanilla and stir until incorporated.

Store any leftovers in the fridge.


  1. I'll kindly ask you to post no more of this, good lady! Next time... a kale recipe!
