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 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. —Carol Hanihan, Ann Arbor, Michigan
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!
