Dora's Hot Fudge

I truly believe there are people placed in our lives for a reason. People who help to mold us into the person we are destined to become. Dora, for me, is one of those wonderful people.  Dora is our neighbor at our previous home.  We lived there for 7 years.  It just became tradition to go every Sunday evening and share dessert, whether it was something I'd whipped up or just a bowl of ice cream covered in Dora's amazing Hot Fudge.  We often found ourselves chatting into the night when we all should have been in bed.  She is a wonderful cook, and shared many recipes with me.  This one is by far one of my favorites.

Dora's Hot Fudge
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla

Stir sugar and cocoa in a medium saucepan, add butter and continue to stir over low heat until melted, mix well.  Add evaporated milk gradually, and stir well.  Bring to a boil and cook for 4 minutes, stirring continually to keep from burning.  Remove from burner and add vanilla.  Stir to combine.   Store in the refrigerator.  (I've found it works best to store in a mason jar, easy to reheat that way) Enjoy.
