I have this recipe written on a tiny post-it note dated 2009.
The recipe comes from my cousins wife, Lynette. I don’t even know if she remembers giving it to me! But, it has been a staple in our home ever since.
This Hot Fudge recipe is simple, comes together quickly, and will knock your socks off! I ALWAYS keep ingredients on hand for this recipe. You never know when hot fudge sundaes will come in handy. Add hot fudge to almost any ice cream and you will most likely please any crowd.
Around Christmas, you’ll always find peppermint ice cream stocked in my freezer, and this hot fudge sauce just takes it to a whole other level!
I store our hot fudge in these condiment containers.
