Nothing tastes better over ice-cream than homemade hot fudge sauce. With help from mom or grandma, pre-teens really enjoy making this recipe. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator and re-heat in the microwave.
30 large marshmallows
2/3 cup milk (I have used evaporated milk at times)
1/4 cup butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
In a saucepan over low heat, heat marshmallows, milk, butter, and salt until marshmallows have melted. Stir often. This should take about five minutes. Add chocolate chips and vanilla extract; continue stirring until chocolate is melted, 5 minutes more. Serve warm.
Note: Instead of vanilla extract, you can add ¼ to ½ teaspoon peppermint extract for a a tasty chocolate mint flavor.
