I had a tub of vanilla ice cream lying around and I wanted to make a sundae, but I had no toppings. So I decided to make my own hot fudge. Luckily I had a pretty stocked pantry and had a can of evaporated milk lying around. Hot fudge is really easy to make. If I had known it was this easy, I would have made it years ago.
