I'm not a fan of ice cream, BUT anything with chocolate is alright with me. The peanut butter just makes it better... I've never had this fail and it's sooo good!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A quick and easy hot fudge sauce with basic ingredients you probably have on hand. Peanut butter is an unusual ingredient we loved and it does not have an overpowering flavor. Thick and creamy, you're going to want a jar of this in the fridge at all times. Spoon over brownies or an ice cream sundae. It's so good you may eat it with a spoon.
