Our Favorite Hot Fudge Sauce

Angela (Grammy) Derby


This decadent chocolate sauce can turn an ordinary dessert into a dazzling delight! Use it as a topping or as a layering, and use your imagination to have fun with it! My family loves it when I make them Hot Fudge Brownie Sundaes. Fill small Ball Jars with this sauce and give to your neighbors and friends for Christmas, they'll love it...and you!
