This is the hot fudge that we grew up on. Its creamy, rich, and delicious- whenever you need a chocolate sauce for your ice cream that includes ingredients you have in your pantry, look no further.

Aunt Elisabeth's Hot Fudge Sauce
1 stick butter
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (if you use milk chips, it will not thicken!)
1 can evaporated milk (12 oz.)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Melt butter on low heat. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted. Add milk and sugar, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil on medium-low heat (still stirring constantly). Once boiling, allow to boil, stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Sauce will thicken upon standing.
