Homemade almost Organic Hot Fudge

I'll admit it, ever since I was pregnant with my daughter I've been a sweets junkie. Before I had her, I liked sweets but now I LOVE them. My hips can attest to it! I try to blame the extra padding on "3 kids in 3 years" but I really think it's just the cheesecake and the peach cobbler, the cookies and the brownies.
Here's one of my favorite recipes that is easily made at home and beats any brand you can buy in the store.
Homemade *almost* Organic Hot Fudge:
1- 14 oz. can organic sweetened condensed milk
4-1 ounce squares semisweet chocolate (if you can find organic, great!)
2 tablespoons organic butter
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

In a double broiler (I just put a glass bowl into a saucepan 1/4 of the way filled with water,) combine the milk, chocolate and butter. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Pour into warmed mason jar and seal with lid. Keep refrigerated until used completely...which may only be a couple of days. :)

Oh, thank you for posting this! I was given a recipe for chocolate syrup the other day from a friend and this finishes my chocolate topping search. :) I have tried several recipes that were OK, but his one is easy...gotta love that! Thanks for posting this.

Organic or not, this is surely way better for you than the stuff that comes in a jar! Right? :-)

I am very excited about this recipe! It is so hard to find recipes that don't have HFCS in them! And a product only has to have 1 organic ingredient to market it as organic, so go ahead and label it as organic!

I believe that to actually be labeled organic by the USDA, all ingredients must be organic. A company can say though, something like "Made with organic wheat." And you're right, HFCS is in everything! We don't buy many processed foods (which helps eliminate it) and stick to organic ones when we do!
This hot fudge is really yummy though and Kim, if you're doing a happy dance then I'm sure the calories you burn in doing it will make up for the ones gained eating it. :)

Sounds wonderful and easy. We will give this a try. We love homemade fudge around here.
