"This is a great hot fudge sauce to use for almost any chocolate dessert. My mom gave me this recipe with a note that said, 'Use this sauce over brownies and vanilla ice cream to make 'Eskimo Pie Delight'. It was a favorite of mine from college." — Erin Nesbit

I made this the first time using exactly what the recipe called for and it was incredible but the 83 grams of fat (in the entire recipe) bothered me. I tried it again and used fat free half and half and it was again, incredible. I honestly could not even tell it was made without the cream. (I used about 3/4 cup of half and half instead of the full cup since it is thinner than cream.) My hubby said it was better than anything you can buy from the store. The fat is incredibly low with only that from the butter. Try it with the FF half and half--you might be surprised! Thanks for the great recipe!
Not sure about those who say this is way too sweet, I used all the called for sugar and still found the taste to be very mild. The texture was somewhat runny and I know that will be fine for pouring over dessert but I do like a thicker topping. This would be a nice complement to whatever it is served with because of its subtle flavor. It is a very simple recipe and as some have mentioned there is no problem with a grainy sugar residue. But,I will continue my search for the perfect hot fudge sauce.
Satiny, shiny, chocolate-y, smooth, rich and delicious...but could be thicker. Next time I'll either cook and stir till good and thick, or add less cream.
The flavor is very chocolatey. I think it would appeal to all chocoholics out there. My only concern with this sauce is that it turned a consistency much like tub margarine. A bit on the firmer side. Which means that each time you want to use it you will definately have to reheat it. Guess I was looking for a consistency more like chocolate syrup.But the flavor is incredibly chocolatey.
This is the best fudge sauce I've ever tasted; husband and sons agree with me!! I didn't have any unsweetened chocolate squares on hand so I mixed 12 tablespoons of premium unsweetened cocoa powder with four tablespoons of canola oil and then prepared the rest of the recipe as written. Outstanding!! Never again will there be store-bought chocolate sauce in this house. I can't wait to try this with ice cream cakes and as a topping for brownies. My search for a truly delicious, rich chocolate sauce is now over. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
Delicious!! I will never buy jarred again. The recipe is really easy. I subbed the cream for evaporated milk and, per previous reviews, used much less liquid (probably about 4 ounces total) because I like it really thick.
Very easy to make with stuff i had on hand. I used two dark chocolate bars, the semi sweet kind. I also subed lite coconut milk for the heavy cream and it tastes scrumptious!!! I only used 1/3 of the sugar called for because my chocolate was already sweet. Also I added less "milk" then called for in the recipe because i wanted a thick dark fudge sauce. This was perfect for me and is just the right consistency now that it is in the fridge.
THANKS!!! Try this one and wow some friends.
THis is the best hot fudge sauce. I used semi sweet chocolate chips (no unsweetened chocolate in the house) and BROWN sugar (out of white sugar- but as you can tell, I was desperate!) and I also used SKIM milk instead of the cream (trying to make up for the fact that I am going to just EAT the entire batch). I stirred in 1 T flour to make up for the difference in cream and Skim milk. It was SOOOO GOOD! YUMMY!
