Step 1: Put It in a Pan...

First up, break your chocolate into the saucepan and weigh in 170g of evaporated milk and the sugar. (I put my pan straight onto my scales, zero them, then weigh out the ingredients straight into the pan. Far easier!)

Place the pan over a low heat.

Step 2: Mix Mix Mix!

Stir constantly until the mixture becomes smooth, silky & thick (2-3 minutes.)

Step 3: All Done!

Then stir in the butter, salt & vanilla. If it is a little thick for your liking, add in a little more evaporated milk to thin it out.

Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving immediately. If you don’t want to use it all in one go or want to give it as a gift, pour into the jar and allow to cool completely at room temperature before storing in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Step 4: Tadah!

To use once refrigerated, simply spoon as much as you want out into a bowl and microwave in 10 second intervals, stirring well between each time, until it’s the temperature/consistency that you like.

Did I not tell you how quick & easy this was to make?! I would eat Chocolate Fudge Sauce straight out the jar if I could get away with it! Whether you want it drizzled over a warm chocolate brownie or pouring over a mountain of ice cream, this beautifully rich & indulgent sauce is guaranteed to be a hit!
