Step 2: Sift Powdered Sugar and Boil

Add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder to a sifter. Sift a third of powdered sugar at a time, whisking in between to make sure the sauce is smooth. Bring to a boil of medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat, mix in vanilla, and pour into a container. Serve warm. Keeps in refrigerator up to a month.

To reheat: Place the desired amount in a heatproof bowl over a sauce pan of simmering water. Stir constantly for about 5 minutes until fudge is smooth and warm. OR, microwave the sauce in 10-second increments, stirring in-between, until it is smooth and warm.
