2 cups butter (4 sticks)
2 cups flour

Homemade Hot Fudge Ingredients:
3 ½ Tbl. cornstarch
2 Tbl. + 2 tsp cocoa powder
2 (12 oz) cans evaporated milk
2 cups sugar
4 Tbl. real butter, divided
2 tsp. vanilla
Vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a jelly roll pan (cookie sheet with sides) with non-stick cooking spray. (17 ½ x 12 ½”)
In a large mixing bowl, add in the eggs, checking for shells.
Beat 2-3 minutes until frothy.Add in the sugar, vanilla and salt.
Mix 3-4 minutes until thick and smooth.
Melt the butter in a microwavable bowl, or in a small pan on the stove.
Add this to the sugar mixture.
In a separate bowl combine the flour and cocoa powder; stir to combine.
Add the flour mixture to the butter and sugar mixture and beat 2-3 minutes.
Pour the brownie mixture into the prepared jelly roll pan and spread out evenly.Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick come out almost clean.
Allow to cool and then cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cornstarch, cocoa powder.
In a medium sauce pan combine the evaporated milk, sugar and 2 Tbl. of the butter.
Add in the cocoa mixture.Stir well
Bring to a boil stirring constantly.
Once the mixture is boiling, boil 2-4 minutes, or until thickened.Remove from the heat and add the last 2 Tbl. butter, vanilla and salt.
Allow the butter to melt, then stir well.Keep warm in a crock pot to serve with brownie and ice cream. *If making hot fudge up in advance, allow it to come to room temperature, then store in the refrigerator. Reheat over the stove, or in a crockpot; depending on your time.
Place a piece of brownie on a plate, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a spoon of the hot fudge sauce.
Note: I doubled the hot fudge sauce to have enough for the brownie sundaes.
