Super Easy Hot Fudge Sauce

This hot fudge comes together in minutes with ingredients you probably have on hand.  It is the perfect ice cream topping!

      This hot fudge sauce only takes a handful of minutes to make.  You can be drizzling it over a bowl of ice cream in ten minutes and you most likely have everything you need to make it in your house already.  We love using it to make sundaes, but really you could drizzle it over anything your heart desires.  Make your hot fudge dreams come true!


     I have a confession to make.  I don't like chocolate syrup.  My husband loves the stuff.  He puts it in his milk and sometimes in his coffee.

    He adds it to his smoothies (nothing says health food like simple syrup and chocolate syrup as regular ingredients in your smoothies!)  I do, however, LOVE hot fudge.

    They are not even close to the same thing.  One is watery and blah and the other is rich and smooth and luscious and wonderful.  Not that I feel strongly about it or anything.

    This is one of those recipes you should just memorize.  It is so easy, comes together quickly and is made from pantry staples.

    If you have a surprise visitor, you can impress them by whipping up a batch and drizzling it over ice cream.  There isn't much better!

    This would also make a great icing drizzled over a bundt cake.  It is also tasty licked off fingers, or spoons, or spatulas or the whisk...



    I am posting it tonight as a tease for what is to come tomorrow.  (I'll give you a hint, it isn't ice cream or bundt cake... or fingers or spoons!)  I can't wait to show you what we had this with.  Ok, I can wait a little bit longer.  Come back tomorrow to find out!

    This recipe started as a fudge frosting recipe that my aunt Marlene taught me.  I made a minor adjustment to make it a little looser.

   You should check out her fudge frosting when you have a chance.  It is perfect for spreading over rice krispie treats or brownies.

    1. Yes you can! I made another batch last week knowing I wanted to use some on ice cream then and the rest to drizzle on a fun cake this weekend. It kept perfectly. (Usually it doesn't last that long around here!) It will solidify in the cold though, so just heat it up 15-20 seconds at a time in the microwave stirring between until it is smooth and stirrable again. Enjoy!

  3. Does this have to be refrigerated? I'm planning on making an ice cream baskets for gifts and won't be refrigerated until unwrapped.

    1. Due to the dairy, I'd be worried about leaving it out for too long. I normally store mine in the refrigerator.

  4. YUM! I want to make ice cream this weekend, so I'll have to make sure and make this to go with! And... I'm going to run the chocolate syrup in the coffee concept by my husband. Interested to see what he thinks of that!
