Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

Ice cream is one of my favorite desserts. My favorite seasonal flavor this time of year is Peppermint, which is best enjoyed with homemade hot fudge sauce. Store bought hot fudge sauce, with the long list of unrecognizable ingredients, doesn't cut it for this ice cream lover. My recipe for Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce is a 10 minute recipe to prepare that tastes incredibly rich and indulgent!

Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce
·¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips
·¼ cup butter
·⅓ cup sugar
·1 tsp vanilla
·⅔ cup evaporated milk

In a small saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over medium heat. Add sugar. Gradually stir in evaporated milk. Once milk is incorporated, stir in vanilla. Bring mixture to boiling, then reduce heat to medium-low. Boil gently, stirring very frequently for 6-8 minutes or until desired thickness is achieved. Remove pan from heat and cool slightly. Serve warm over ice cream. Store in the fridge and reheat in microwave before serving again.
