Hot Fudge "Icing?"

What do you do when you don't want to drive out into the winter darkness, but somebody in the house really wants a sundae? You cook, man. You cook. Keep it real and homemade! I was in a hurry, having just finished cooking dinner and I didn't read the "icing" part in the recipe title. Sigh. It looks like hot fudge, it tastes like hot fudge... it must be hot fudge! Opps, no, it's still icing... but it's pretty darn good on ice cream. It's got kind of a "magic shell" kind of thing going on when it gets cold.

Hot Fudge - fine, okay it's "Icing" (feel better?)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
6 tablespoons milk
1 pound powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Melt the butter, add the cocoa, milk, and vanilla. Mix in the powdered sugar.

  1. I don't know what Dutch Processed means, but can I just use cocoa powder? Looks soooo good, I think Lauren and I might have to try this.
    It looks like hot fudge by the way, and so not like Icing.

  2. I just used plain old cocoa and it worked fine. Just if you don't use it up after you make it, it sets up kind of like fudge. I haven't tried melting it or anything yet to see if that would work. Let me know if you guys try it and if you like it! It was very yummy!
