3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup milk or milk substitute
1/2 cup margarine
1 tsp vanilla
6-8 oz chocolate chips

Combine flour and sugar. Stir in milk. Microwave on high 2 minutes. Beat well. Continue cooking, stirring every 30 seconds, until thick. (usually 2-3 additional minutes)

Add margarine, vanilla and chocolate chips (adjust amount of chocolate chips to your taste preference) Stir until margarine and chocolate melt and everything is combined.

Use at this stage for an ice cream hot fudge topping. Allow to cool for a fudge cake topping. For fluffy chocolate frosting, allow to cool and whip until fluffy.

This versatile recipe can be used as an ice cream hot fudge topping, a fudge cake filling or topping, or whipped into a fluffy chocolate frosting.

Note: I have made this gluten and dairy free in the past, but am not certain of the measurements. I think it was 1 Tbsp tapioca starch for the flour, and rice or soy milk for the milk.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.

Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
