This Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Sauce is literally so amazing, incredible, indescribable…seriously I can’t think of any words to tell you just how good it is. You just need to try it. Like now.
We are huge hot fudge fans. My whole family, all 7 of us.
It was at the beginning of our marriage that I was on the mission to find the perfect hot fudge recipe. We tried several, like I am talking 20+ recipes.
I stuck to a family recipe for about 5 years and then I came across Crunchy Cream Sweet’s 10-Minute Hot Fudge Sauce on Pinterest. I had to try it. SO GLAD I DID. (And yes the ALL-CAPS is me yelling.) It is that good. So good. Like my mouth is watering just thinking of it. Since then I have made a few versions of that recipe, including this one, a kid favorite in our house. This Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Sauce is easy, ready in 10-minute and will send you to peanut butter chocolate euphoria.
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons butter
- ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
Combine all ingredients, except the vanilla in a medium saucepan cook on medium heat while stirring constantly. Cook until bubbly, approximately 5-6 minutes. Sauce should be smooth and creamy, with no sugar granules left.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Let sit for at least 3-5 minutes, allowing it too cool and thicken.
Store covered in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
