6 T butter or margerine

1 t. vanilla

1 Tablespoon vanilla

¼ - ½ t. ground cinnamon

1 t. ground cinnamon


  1. Mix cocoa and sugar in small saucepan
  2. Stir in milk and add margarine/butter
  3. Heat over medium heat until boiling, stirring constantly
  4. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce is smooth and slightly thickened, 3-4 minutes
  5. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and cinnamon.
  6. Serve hot/warm or at room temperature.


  1. Looks and sounds great, I've never made my own hot fudge sauce so I will have to give this a try!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I can't wait to try this, looks great!

    Will it store well in the fridge?

  3. Yes -- This stores fine in the fridge, though it never lasts more than a week or so in our house! You can reheat it in the microwave or over low heat on the stovetop.
