Remember back when when I posted the Honey Citrus Vinaigrette recipe and talked about how sometimes you can just look at the ingredient list for a recipe and instantly know in the pit of your soul that it would make you happy? Well I have three words for you: Chocolate. Butter. Sweetened Condensed Milk. Any questions? I didn’t think so. If you’re wondering how something so incredibly simple could be so incredibly delicious, then you’ll just have to make it to find out. This was a favorite in our house growing up, and we especially loved it at Christmas time over peppermint ice cream. The great thing is that these are ingredients that (at least at our house) are always in the pantry. I promise once you make this you’ll never buy that bottled Hershey’s stuff again! And let’s face it; if you’re making homemade ice cream already, it deserves the best :)

Three of my tummy’s favorite things


Something else that might come in handy: The SINGLE SERVING.
In the comments of Kate’s Brazilian Lemonade post, I mentioned this great little invention:

The tiny can of sweetened condensed milk.

You find them not with the baking things, like regular sweetened condensed milk, but in the Latin Foods isle in a little six pack. They are PERFECT for all sorts of things when you don’t need a whole can. Each cute little can has 3.5 oz, which is 1/4 the size of a normal can. And it makes the most perfect single serving of this fudge sauce, so here’s the quantities for that!


Just for One:

1 tiny can sweetened condensed milk
2 T chocolate chips
1T butter

Just pop it in the microwave and heat in 45 second intervals until smooth!


I love to put these into cute little jars and give them away as gifts. One year for Christmas I filled little pints with homemade peppermint ice cream and topped it with a jar of chocolate sauce and a big red ribbon. You could do the same with caramel (that’s buttermilk syrup aka caramel sauce in the bottom jar) how cute are these?

It also works as a great quick and easy fondue!

Wanna try some? Give me a shout if you’re a local and one of these is yours!

This makes a darling Christmas gift!

Storage: This is just fine kept at room temp for a day, but if you are going to keep it overnight or for an extended period of time, pop it in the fridge and just reheat in the microwave.

Pretty Freaking Good poured over this stuff too:

Puffed French Toast (oooh, that’s naughty!)
Double Chocolate Waffles
Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream
