This hot fudge is so simple to whip up. So yummy on so many things - like a drizzle on my chocolate fudge cupcakes, on ice cream, in sundaes, on fruit, or use in trifles, the list is endless. So easy to store too. I put it in a squeeze bottle, use what I need, and stick it in the fridge. Take out and put it in the microwave at 15-second intervals until it's where I want it. THE BEST: a brownie, scoop of ice cream on top, then this sauce drizzled over top, sprinkle with nuts bananas or strawberries, or raspberries or all of them. :) Great, simple, and impressive dessert.

This hot fudge is going to become a staple in your fridge. The condensed milk makes this rich and irresistible. It's a thick, rich, and creamy chocolaty sauce. The texture reminds us of a caramel sauce. This would be yummy pretty much drizzled over anything. Cheap, simple, and very few ingredients make this hot fudge recipe a winner!
