ok, I have finally found a hot fudge recipe that I am going to keep. I did change a few things, though. I did not add any vanilla. I added about 6 ounces and unsweetened baking chocolate, I thought after tasting it that it tasted like chocolate SAUCE not FUDGE, so that's why I added the extra chocolate. I also added almost a teaspoon of salt. It helped to cut down on the VERY sugary taste. I did not have to put the mixture into a blender, it was prefectly smooth by just whisking it, it also keeps very well in the fridge and reheats perfectly. oh I forgot to add, it DOES NOT taste like carmel, the people that say that MUST be using sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk. Oh, and it was just a tad bit thin at first, then once it cooled it was perfect.

I love to make hot fudge and have used various recipes; some call for sweetened condensed milk, others call for sugar and evaporated milk, some with cocoa, others with choc chips. I decided to give this one a try after just not finding one quite thick enough or creamy enough. This was perfect. The consistency was excellent. I have made it numerous times now. I have upped the cocoa to almost 1/2 cup to prevent the caramel taste and give it a richer chocolate taste. I have also (after reading some reviews) added in a handful of semisweet choc chips. A tip to save on dishes and time is to use a hand blender while boiling on the stove instead of using a blender after cooking. I'm keeping this recipe and will be giving this out for Christmas gifts this year.

Another tip to follow up... We discovered that if you use only 1-1/3 cup of butter, it is slightly less thick and has less of a carmelized consistency and more like fudge rather than caramel. Also, for the left-over sauce, it is not grainy and does not crystalize. Try it!
