A treat to dip strawberries or banana chunks once in a while.



In heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt chips, butter, sweetened condensed milk, and water. Cook and stir constantly until thick. Add vanilla. Serve warm over ice cream or as a fruit dipping sauce.

Great for dipping strawberries. Refrigerate leftovers.

  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder (like Hershey's)
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. corn starch


Whisk above together, and put through little sieve if necessary to make sure cocoa powder has no lumps.


Add 3-4 tablespoons milk (skim, whole, evaporated, any will do). A dollop of vanilla, and a dollop of butter as well added after first 30 seconds in microwave.

Microwave 30 seconds in bowl. Whisk, microwave another 30 seconds. It should be smooth and thickened when whisked and look like hot fudge topping.

You can of course thin with another spoon of milk as desired. Pour over ice cream, about 1 tablespoon per scoop. Should serve up to 4.

I am looking for a recipe for the Hot Fudge they have at Friendly's Restaurants in the Northeast. I love that stuff, but live in Missouri and they don't have Friendly's out here.

I found this recipe at It's not an original, but supposedly a 'clone.' Hope it comes close.

Friendly's Hot Fudge Recipe Clone

1 can Eagle Brand condensed milk (14oz.)
1 bottle light Karo syrup (14oz.)
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 lb. butter

Melt all ingredients together in top of a double boiler. Melt and cook 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and beat with electric mixer for 3 minutes. Cool slightly and place in airtight container. Heat when needed.

Microwave 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips on HIGH, stirring occasionally, until melted, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Stir in 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk, 1/4 cup light corn syrup, 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract and a pinch of salt until smooth. Serve warm or at room temperature.




Hot Fudge Sauce

Thank You! Thank You! I've been looking for a good recipe for this as we always seem to discover that the jar is empty when we really want some to put on our ice cream. Then I'm rummaging around trying to concoct something similar and edible! This sounds so good and I have all the ingredients in my pantry right now! Can't wait to try it! (08/21/2007)

Melt chocolate, butter, milk and water and vanilla over medium heat. Cook and stir constantly until thickened; about 5 minutes. Refrigerate.

To reheat: place small amounts in microwave at full power for 10-15 seconds.

Hot Fudge Recipe

I have a recipe that you boil for seven minutes and then blend it for two minutes. My last batch had sugar crystals in it. Can anyone tell me how to avoid this and how to fix it now. (02/24/2009)
