Hot Fudge Chocolate Sauce


The Gary Hanks family is amazed to realize that we have a recipe that others might want.  This is the recipe for my mom’s (Cindy Hanks) hot fudge sauce that goes on ice cream.  We like to give it out at Christmas time and some of our family friends refer to it as “the jar of chocolaty goodness” and they hide it from each other and eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon.


2 cups sugar

1 large can evaporated milk

2 Tbsp. flour

4 Tbsp. butter

4 Tbsp. cocoa

pinch of salt

2 tsp. vanilla


Mix sugar, cocoa, flour, salt.  Slowly add milk, stir, and add butter. Cook to boiling.  Boil 2 1/2 minutes.  Stir constantly.  Add vanilla when cool.
