"We loved this. It's easy to make and definitely yummy! After taking it from the fridge, we will put the amount of topping we want in an ice cream bowl, zap it in the microwave for ten seconds, and THEN put our ice cream on top! It makes the warming up easy and it's fun!"

"I have to give this hot fudge a 5 star rating. It is awesome! I did add a dash of salt and a splash of vanilla but it is great."

"Have made this many times! Family loves it. Big batch, so we freeze it and we can scoop out individual servings & microwave it."
