Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce


I have wanted to make this for quite a while but kept putting it off. I am not an ice cream fan like the rest of my family who believe that a day without ice cream is a day without sunshine. We had all the ingredients and were looking for something a bit sweet to top our ice cream with so this was the perfect time to make the sauce.

This is not a great picture of the sauce or ice cream but I have decided taking pictures of melting ice cream is difficult! The ice cream was eaten almost before I got my first picture taken.

Verdict:

This sauce is good if you like your hot fudge sauce not as sweet as most jarred sauces. This reminds me of a darker chocolate sauce.  I thought it perfectly set off the mint chocolate chip ice cream that I served it with.  Top it with whipped cream and cherries for a delicious sundae.

  8. Phwoar I could have this any day of the year. Summer, winter, you name it. I’m such a sucker for chocolate and you’re combining ice cream, hot sauce and a deliciously fudgey flavour? I’m SO in.
