Warm Creamy Chocolate Sauce For Fruit or Ice Cream

Family Favorites


Also known as %$#@ Delicious Mississippi Mud Sauce in my home. lol This is an incredibly easy and delicious microwave, fudgy sauce that we use on ice cream, sliced Granny Smith apples and fresh strawberries on Valentine's Day as a warm, creamy chocolate dipping sauce. Made in less than five minutes, you'll wonder why you ever bought that tasteless stuff at the store.

Impress your Valentine every day of the year!
