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.

    This looks like my favorite cake I’ve never tried. Yum! After reading the directions, it seems like you could reduce the prep time by simply preparing the brownie batter first and setting it aside while prepping the cake batter, and then baking them at the same time. Either way, I am putting this on my “MUSTS!” list. Thanks for sharing.
