You know those days where you have a crazy craving for chocolate but only cocoa powder in the house? That happened to me this weekend. I googled “cocoa powder and powdered sugar,” and lo and behold, this amazing recipe popped up on Tasty Kitchen (thank you, Pioneer Woman, for creating this haven of goodness). After making a single batch of this over the weekend, I quadrupled it to have some in the fridge. This comes together so fast, and the best thing is that there’s no stovetop required!
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk (or heavy cream, or whatever milk product your heart desires!)
4 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup cocoa powder
3 cups powdered sugar
Warm the butter and milk in the microwave until the butter is melted. Add the vanilla, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar. Mix until smooth. That’s it. Seriously. I mean, just look at this goodness.
Now enjoy some amazing hot fudge!
Yield: approximately 2 cups
