Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce is easy to make, however not alway easy to make well. There’s nothing worse than Hot Fudge that has gritty sugar crystals that form in it.
In my opinion Hot Fudge Sauce should be Smooth & Creamy. This Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe gets an A+ in that category.
One of my favorite treats is ice cream. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is. Summer, Fall, Spring or even on a cold Winter’s day. Nothing beats a big scoop of ice cream with all the toppings. And nothing beats Homemade toppings.
