Dad’s Easy Hot Fudge Sauce

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!

Ingredients

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

Directions

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.
