The best part about dessert from the slow cooker is that when dinner’s done, a hot treat is ready to serve. In this case, a chocolaty, gooey, minty treat you can’t get enough of! —Terri McKitrick, Delafield, Wisconsin
For big chocolate taste, Sue Gronholz of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin treats her family to this thick ice cream topping. "It's a snap to make the fudgy sauce," she writes. "And we like it better than the store-bought kind!"
I usually keep a supply of this sauce in the refrigerator at all times so I can make one of these sundaes whenever I crave one. The recipe has wonderful chocolate-caramel flavor and has been in our family for years.
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!
