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.
I make this every year for one of our counselors birthday. He adores them along with everyone else. It's my mothers recipe and I grew up eating cream puffs. I have to triple the batch when I take them to school.—Diana Voland, Martinsville, Indiana
Charlene likes to top off meals with a time-tested treat. "After Sunday dinners, my grandmother served her special Hot Fudge Sundaes," remembers Charlene. "The thick fudgy sauce comes together in no time and is terrific over ice cream. My whole family looks forward to this delicious dessert."
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!
