Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce…it’s as easy as…1 – 2 – 3! Only 3 simple ingredients and a few minutes and you have rich and creamy Hot Fudge Sauce! And even better…it makes a perfect little Christmas gift!

I’ve been whipping up this Hot Fudge Sauce for a couple years now, but after visiting Hershey’s recently, I decided to try it with their new Baking Melts. The results? Rich, creamy, chocolatety and even easier than before!

Like I said…super easy and only 3 ingredients…

That’s it! Can you believe it?

Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe

  • 1/2 cup Hershey’s Baking Melts {I used Milk Chocolate, but they have others as well}
  • 1 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/4 cup Butter


  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat until all ingredients are melted, smooth and creamy
  2. Let cool slightly, serve immediately or store in a container in the fridge for up to a month
  3. To reheat, spoon into a microwave safe bowl and heat until smooth

Do you have a chocolate lover in your life? How about this little gift filled with chocolate goodness?

Fill a small jar with the Hot Fudge Sauce, add a circle of fabric under the rim. Add some shredded paper to a box or basket, add the jar of Hot Fudge Sauce, add some fun Hershey’s Kisses cookie cutters and a handful or two of Hershey’s Kisses. And you might want to add a little spoon too!

And because I can never get enough chocolate, here’s a little look at my trip to the Sweetest place on Earth…Hershey’s Headquarters!

I’m very honored to have been chosen as one of the 12 bakers that make up the Hershey’s Bakers Dozen! Along with Courtney from PizzazzerieKarly from Buns in My OvenMeaghan from The Decorated CookieNaomi from Baker’s RoyaleJulie from The Little KitchenBridget from Bake at 350Lindsay and Taylor from Love and Olive OilSusan from DoughmessticJessica from The Novice ChefSarah from Baking911Shelly from Cookies & Cups and  Linda Stahl from Hershey heading it all!

I stayed at the gorgeous Hershey’s Cottages, near the Hershey’s Hotel. Each cottage has 4 rooms, and in the middle is where we gathered for breakfast and a late night snack of cookies and milk!

The first day we visited Hershey’s Chocolate World…one my favorites!

Every where you turn…chocolate goodness!

Creating our own candy bar was lots of fun too! There were choices of ingredients, and watching them being made was pretty cool!

Learning all about Milton Hershey and his legacy was also a big part of the trip. Just like a lot of us, Mr. Hershey failed several times before creating the Hershey’s Chocolate Bar. And did you know that Mr. Hershey left his entire fortune to the Milton Hershey School for orphan boys? Today the school has both girls and boys in grades Kindergarten through 12th, and each child receives a full education, clothing, food, etc. totaling around $100,000 per child each year.

The children live in homes on the school grounds, and each home has a set of parents. The children are expected to maintain their grades, help around the house and behave, but never expected to pay back any of the money.

So the next time you purchase a Hershey’s product, you know that you are helping these children to live a better life.

The next day was filled with…

A little of this…

and a little of this…

oh yes, and some of this…

And ending with little ol’ me…in the Hershey’s Test Kitchens! Someone…pinch me please!

The Santa Bucket was designed by me for the Cookie Headquarters and then we put it together at the Hershey’s Test Kitchens. The professional photographer was amazing to watch on the set!

I’ll let you know when the video I shot is done. The crew was so helpful and very patient with me trying to remember my lines. The cake I have in front of me is the Hershey’s Chocolate Cake, frosted and decorated with Hershey’s Baking Melts.

There was lots more fun, but I’ll save that for another time! It was a fantastic trip! If you have the chance to take your family to Hershey’s, be sure to, they will love it!

Disclosure: Hershey’s provided a trip to me and compensation as part of the Baker’s Dozen program. As always, the opinions are my own.
