Hot Fudge Sauce

Hot fudge sundaes are one of my all time favorite desserts. Growing up, my dad and I were both crazy about ice cream. We’d have a bowl almost every night. His favorite was butter pecan. Mine was vanilla with hot fudge sauce on top.

After growing up eating the store bought stuff, I wanted to try to make some at home. There are a variety of recipes out there. This one is nice and simple and results in a creamy, extremely gooey, hot fudge sauce (aka, perfection).

Ever since I started making ice cream, I’ve kept a jar of this stuff in the fridge at all times. Hubby still claims he isn’t a chocolate guy, so he always declines when I offer him some hot fudge sauce on his ice cream. More for me I guess!

My two favorite ice creams to eat this with so far have been the Roasted Pistachio Ice Cream and the Mint Chip Ice Cream. With the roasted pistachio ice cream, it’s a sophisticated twist on the classic peanut butter and chocolate combination. And I’m sure I don’t have to explain why it’s amazing on the mint chip ice cream. In fact, since that ice cream was SO minty, I almost enjoyed it better with the hot fudge sauce than without it.

    Looks yummy. While I wouldn’t expect it to last long, how long will it last in the fridge?

      I’ve had a jar in my fridge for up to a month or so without any issues.
