Hot Fudge Sauce

Hot Fudge Sundae

Yesterday, I did a cooking program with about 50 kids. It was our last session of the school year, and we always finish up with ice cream. We had fresh strawberry milkshakes and sundaes, topped with hot fudge sauce and whipped cream. The sundaes were a big success.

On a hot summer day, I am not sure anything is better than ice cream. When it comes to topping ice cream, hot fudge sauce is one of my favorites. The warm, rich sauce on the cold ice cream is such a great combination.

When I was a kid, getting a hot fudge sundae was the ultimate treat. I knew the kids would love it, too.

This simple recipes duplicates that sauce. It is easy to make and will keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge. I doubt it will last that long, once you taste it.
