A cake baked in a slow cooker may seem unusual. But smiles around the dinner table prove how tasty it is. Sometimes, for a change of pace, I substitute butterscotch chips for chocolate. —Marleen Adkins, Placentia, California
Here's a wonderful way to top off a great meal—a rich chocolaty cake that's not overly sweet. Mom served it with a scoop of ice cream or cream poured over. I'd always have room for a serving of Hot Fudge Cake.

“My mom used to make a recipe like this when I was younger. I decided to make some healthy changes, and this version is as good, if not better than the original. Being a dietitian, I love to come up with ways to lighten up recipes. I would bake all the time if I could!” Jackie Termont - Elkhart, Indiana
Hot fudge sundaes are an elegant but easy dessert. This rich, dark chocolate sauce drapes beautifully and is delicious on peppermint ice cream, coffee ice cream, butter pecan and lots of other flavors!
I've made this scrumptious topping ever since the early 1980s. It always turns out smooth and yummy. The dark chocolate flavor, with a hint of rum extract, is not overly sweet but will still satisfy a chocoholic's cravings.

My husband is a real chocolate lover, so I'm always on the lookout for great dessert recipes like this one, which I found years ago. Who can resist the combination of chocolate cake, ice cream and hot fudge sauce? It gets rave reviews whenever I serve it.
Dorothy Floyd sends her daughter's recipe for a wonderful dessert topping, Hot Fudge Sauce. While Dorothy hails from Norton, Ohio, her daughter Vicki Wolfe cooks across the state in Cincinnati. But they're both chocoholics, and Vicki was happy to send this one to her mom. Dorothy writes, “She has many recipes for hot fudge sauce, and gave me this one as she knows I like easy recipes.” We're sure you'll like this one, too.
I created this recipe one hot summer night when I went to the kitchen to make four sundaes and didn't have quite enough hot fudge sauce. So I decided to use the raspberry sauce I'd made for that morning's waffles. After the first spoonful, I knew I'd created the perfect sundae!
