whenever we get together for a family party (& i use the word family loosely… growing up far from “immediate” family, our friends and neighbors quickly became our family). anyway, as soon as the party is announced, the first question anyone asks is if larene is bringing hot fudge. warm & thick, oo-ey & goo-ey, on top of ice-cream or all on it’s own – it’s seriously is the best way to end a meal. so seeing as i’m packing by bags, & heading up to see friends & family at THIS fabulous party, i’ll leave you with the famous hot fudge recipe. (& if you too are going to be in town, drop me a line, i’d love to meet!)
marilyn’s (larene’s mom) famous hot fudge
3 sticks of butter
1 large can of carnation evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
12-14 tablespoons of cocoa
2 lb. bag of powder sugar
combine butter, milk & vanilla in a saucepan and cook on medium heat until butter is melted. then add cocoa & sugar & mix. once it is mixed well, pour it into a blender to mix out all the chunks.
