The homemade fudge sauce is super yummy!! Just be careful, it melts fast. We took it to a pool party and they all raved about it.

The homemade fudge was so delicious, it made this dessert definetly worth the extra time and effort. To make it even more simple I bought already made cookie crust. Yummy!
