  6. Spread into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until just set. Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the brownies. The toothpick should come out sticky, but not runny. Do not overbake.

The Ultimate Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

The secret ingredient in this homemade hot fudge sauce is the addition of malted milk powder. This adds a unique toasty, almost buttery flavor to recipes and really makes this chocolate hot fudge sauce shine. You can use as little or as much as you like drizzled on top of a brownie a la mode.


If there is any remaining hot fudge sauce, it can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. To reheat, gently warm over low heat in the top of a double boiler or in 30 second increments in the microwave.
