Hot Fudge Sauce

This recipe is actually a frosting for cake but to me it seems more like hot fudge so thats what we use it for. It's very smooth, more like a fudge that you'd get at an ice cream place rather than a "fudgey" fudge that is almost a gritty texture.

Hot Fudge Sauce
1 cup sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
3 1/2 tbsp baking cocoa
dash salt
1 cup boiling water
3 tbsp butter or margarine
1 tsp vanilla
In a saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch, cocoa & salt until no lump of cornstarch or cocoa remain (very important - if you don't mix well enough the frosting will be lumpy).
Heat water in microwave until boiling. Place saucepan with dry mixture on an already medium hot burner. Pour boiling water over mixture and stir until thick. Take off burner and add butter and vanilla. Stir until butter is melted. Serve.
