This chocolatey recipe is quick, easy, inexpensive and tastes better than store-bought versions. What more can you ask?
Dairy-free Hot Fudge Sauce
1/2 C cocoa
2 C sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1 C boiling water
1 tsp vanilla
Mix cocoa, sugar and salt in a medium sized saucepan. (Don’t use a small pan, as the mixture rises up when it boils.) Add boiling water and stir well. Boil 2-3 minutes.
Cool, then add vanilla. Store in refrigerator.
Note: Be aware that this thickens as it cools. Choose a shorter boiling time if you want a thin sauce to mix in milk for chocolate milk, or boil it a bit longer for a thick sauce to spoon over ice cream or fruit.
