Classic Hot Fudge Sauce

Hot fudge has to be one of my favorite things on this planet. On ice cream, drizzled over cake or brownies, mixed into milk – you name it, I love it. Sadly, I’d always relied on the kind from the jar to get my fix. But, as with some of my other favorite store-bought items, I wanted to learn to make it at home.

I came across this recipe right before Christmas, and made it for Andrew’s teachers at school – along with some peanut brittle. It’s everything that hot fudge sauce should be. Thick, smooth, and chocolaty. The best part? It only uses 3 ingredients, all of which are pantry staples in my home.

I’m still trying to decide if this is a good thing, or a bad thing…

    Does this stay in a pouring consistency or does it harden?

      It hardens upon refrigeration, but becomes pouring consistency again with just a few moments in the microwave.

    I made this today and it is delicious! Thanks for sharing. Do I store this in the refrigerator and how long does it keep?
