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.

    OMG, I am in love with these cupcakes! They’re so awesome! I love HP, and I made owl cupcakes when the movie came out. I might need to give these a try before going to see the IMAX 3D movie.

    How cute are those?! And i was wondering how you got the lettering so perfect – thanks for the step-by-step. Lol – I just dragged DH to the Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry – I’m sure he’ll be happy when the final movie comes out and he doesn’t have to hear about it anymore!

    I’m so jealous! My two sisters are going to the exhibit this weekend. I thought about flying to Chicago to join them. Luckily I found out the exhibit is coming here in October. Whew!

    I hate when cupcakes do that to me too. Instead of baking up they bake out! 🙁

    Love your Harry Potter cupcake toppers! Very cute and creative!

    Hi Jen! A friend of mine forwarded me your page for HP Cupcakes and I just wanted to drop in and say that I think they’re awesome and I want to run home now and try to create some fun hp themed cakes! I had done some in the past–cauldron cakes if you will, by buying mini cauldrons and cutting the bottom off so the tops sat just on the cakes and then used a bit of green frosting on the inside. You should join up with the HP-MA crew! We’ve been organizing some meet-ups for Boston Fans!

    So so cute! And yeah, those “HPs” must have taken FOREVER. I have a fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe that never fails me here: http://annies-eats.com/2008/07/18/vanilla-cupcakes/. Also, I recently made Dorie’s perfect party cake into cupcakes and had great results with that as well.

    I love your HP cupcakes! I too am a huge Harry Potter fan but I have to admit, I don’t think I’d be patient enough to make cupcakes and toppings as cute as yours!
