Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce Your Kids Will Love

It's the season for ice cream and this past weekend, a banana split was calling our names. My husband wanted to get all the fixings for us, but I knew I've never seen a natural hot fudge sauce in our area stores. In particular, one that didn't contain high fructose corn syrup and wasn't made on shared equipment or in a plant with nuts {our older girl has a gluten and nut allergy}. So, I went pinterest searching and made the most delicious and easy hot fudge sauce recipe that my daughter LOVED along with myself and my hubby {thank you Mama Ging}.

Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp corn starch
- 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup milk
- 2 1/2 tbsp butter {I used Land O'Lakes Spreadable Butter with Canola Oil}
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

In a saucepan, whisk together sugar, cornstarch and cocoa. Add milk and butter. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, removed from heat and stir with whisk for 1 minute. Now add vanilla and stir to combine. Let cool a bit before eating {if you can}. Makes approx  1 1/2 cups of sauce. {this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if needed}
