Hot Fudge Sauce II

Made  times

"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."

Absolutely perfect. Mine thickened up nicely. I followed the directions exact EXCEPT using semi-sweet chocolate because that was all I had. We used this fudge sauce to make homemade peanut buste...

Although I modified the recipe by using bittersweet chocolate chips, brown sugar, and half & half, it made a smooth, chocolatey, just-thick-enough sauce--perfect for our vanilla bean ice cream. ...
