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 (unless I'm using for a trifle) use what I need, stick in the fridge, take out and put in the microwave at 15-second intervals until its where I want it. THE BEST is: 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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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! The Test Kitchen
