This is a recipe I got from my mom. I don’t know where she got it, maybe my grandma? It’s the best hot fudge recipe! So good and so easy. I always have some in the fridge. I made this batch to have for the holidays…to put on cheesecake 🙂 Yum!!!

You can make this gluten free. You could leave out the butter to make it dairy free.

Hot Fudge

makes about 2 cups

1 cup organic cane sugar
1/3 cup organic cocoa
2 Tbsp. all purpose flour OR 1 Tbsp. tapioca flour (to make it gluten free)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup boiling water
1 Tbsp. butter
3/4 tsp. vanilla

Blend sugar, cocoa, flour and salt in sauce pan. Turn on heat and add boiling water. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, until thick, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in butter and vanilla. Store in refrigerator.

*The sauce will thicken more as it cools.

    So… how do you think this would be without vanilla? I used my last bit of vanilla to make vanilla ice cream last night. I almost always have a backup vanilla, but can’t find one this morning to use with this. Hmmm. To go to the store or just leave it out…
