As highlighted in the video, this pantry project is an “oh, darn, I GUESS I’ll use these ingredients up.” Homemade hot fudge is embarrassingly easy to make and only requires a handful of ingredients. You can modify the recipe as you’d like – different types of chocolate, flavored liqueurs, salted or unsalted, etc. I only use 5 ingredients – chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, butter, espresso powder, and salt.
HOT FUDGE SAUCE
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 8 ounces chocolate (can use baking chocolate, chocolate chips, chocolate bars, etc)
- 1/4 teaspoon espresso powder
- Pinch of Salt
In a medium nonstick saucepan or nonstick saute pan, melt butter and heat sweetened condensed milk over low to medium heat – do not crank the heat on this recipe – ingredients can all burn easily. Stir in chocolate, espresso powder, and salt. Heat and stir until chocolate is fully melted and incorporated, about five minutes. Sauce and be served immediately or cool and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
