Under the Apron Strings: Big Boy Fudge Sauce

After I’d spend the day outside in the hot summer sun, a great retreat was to situate myself in air conditioning with a bowl of ice cream drizzled with Big Boy Fudge Sauce. I find now, hot fudge can also be the perfect remedy for a cold day.

On many occasions, Mama made Hot Fudge Cake just like Shoney’s in Columbia served.

A square slice of chocolate cake, a slice of commercial ice cream, another slice of chocolate cake drizzled with chocolate sauce and topped off with whipped cream and a cherry made for a delectable dessert.


1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick)

2 cups powdered sugar

3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 can of evaporated milk (12 ounces) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a 3-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat

  • Add sugar, chocolate chips and milk. Increase heat to medium high and bring ingredients to a boil, stirring constantly for 8 minutes

  • Remove from heat

  • Stir in vanilla

  • You will begin to see the sauce thickening as it cools

  • Use immediately or store in covered dish in refrigerator up to a month
