  • ½ c. butter
  • 1 c. light corn syrup
  • 1 c. evaporated milk
  • 2 c. chocolate chips I use a combination of semisweet and milk chocolate
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla optional
  • Dash salt optional


  • Bring butter, corn syrup, and evaporated milk to a boil. Remove from the heat and add vanilla and salt if desired.
  • Put chocolate chips in a blender. Pour butter mixture over chocolate chips in the blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. It happens fast, about 10 seconds should do it.
  • Pour in a jar. Serve right away. Store leftovers in the fridge. I usually just warm up a little bit each time I want some hot fudge sauce.
  • NOTE: I usually cut this recipe in half
